Old Photograph Handloom Weavers Ladyknowe Moffat Scotland
Old photograph of handloom weavers at Ladyknowe by Moffat, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. Moffat was a notable market in the wool trade. From 1633 Moffat began to grow from a small village into a popular spa town. The infamous murderer and alleged grave robber William Hare may have stayed in the Black Bull Hotel during his escape to Ireland after turning King's evidence against William Burke. Robert Burns came for the waters and frequented the local bars.
