Hogarth, Gin Lane Featured Print

Hogarth, Gin Lane

Hogarth, Gin Lane. A political print supporting a ministerial measure against the unlimited sale of gin (which later became the Gin Act). A scene of London life is depicted in which the pawnbrokers, gin cellar and distillery are now flourishing, and people's lives are being destroyed by their addiction to gin, with examples of infanticide, starvation, madness, decay and suicide.

Bobbin-net Machine at a Nottingham Lace Factory

"A "bobbin-net" lace-making machine, invented by John Heathcoat in the 1750s. The warp, ascending from beam A, passes through small holes in guide-bar B, then to C where bobbins in combs, driven by ledges on two bars beneath, traverse the warp to and fro, and interlace the threads at D. The points at E help maintain the form of the meshes." Date: 1843
