A photo from our Eason Collection that may well have been used by Eason’s as a postcard. The shy wife is using a spinning wheel and I think that the grandmother(?) is carding wool.

Nice info in from @MakeOneYarns on Twitter that this was what was called a walking wheel, which is the oldest type without a bobbin and flyer. She said:
"… used after development of hand spindles, before development of flyer/bobbin mechanism. Check medieval mss illus."

Date: Circa 1900
