Images of windmills, animal powered mills and millstone manufacture

This Sub - Series features 10 photographs and 1 photocopy of a painting. There are three photographs of windmills, three photographs, one engraving and one photocopy of a painting which feature Animal Powered Mills and the last three photographs are copyrighted images of the Times newspaper demonstrating the industrial process of millstone manufacture. A postcard presenting an illustration of animal powered mills in India used to belong to this folder. However, this item as with all other postcards has been moved to the new postcard folder. It is important to note that the images of millstone manufacture have not been added as Digital Object files to the catalogue entries as The Times could still own the copyright of these specific images.
