The image is found on Spinning the Web. The site is one of those great information and resource sites online housing some 20,000 archive items which relate to the Lancashire Cotton Industry. You can search using a standard search function or browse by topic such as People, Place, or Industry. The Overview section is a hotspot timeline.
Not only is the content of the site interesting – it will keep anyone busy for hours! The site is well designed. The designer has solved the problem of presenting a huge amount of material that make up multiple and complex narrative threads as it is easy to navigate and find information on the site.
