The Mills at Lowell, MA

I had the great opportunity to tour the old textile mills in Lowell, MA. It was incredible seeing the old processes (state-of-the-art at the time), and helped me appreciate the great efforts and sacrifices people made to create the textile industry that we know today. Textiles from here were shipped all over the United States until the mid twentieth century. Now…it’s just vintage Americana.
