Verdant Works

By lenocm
Verdant Works was one of the many Jute Mills in Dundee and, in conjunction with the RSS Discovery, has been taken over by the Dundee Heritage Trust and opened as a Jute Museum. The machinery in the museum does function and I was given a demonstration by a delightful lady whose career started as a jute mill worker at the age of 15! In those days there were no "Health & Stupidity" laws and only one rule applied - girls with long hair had to tie it up to prevent it getting caught in the machinery. Each of the machines on its own was very noisy and the thought of dozens or hundreds of them running simultaneously is unimaginable. Many of the women did go deaf.
