Thwaite's Mill, as Barbs has told us, made putty in the later years of its commercial life. This is a little less than one half of one of the mixing machines there. Scale is a bit difficult, but the wheel is about two and a half feet diameter and it is rolling around in a bowl about six feet diameter. This is on the first floor of the mill, that whole contraption was spinning at a fair old rate and the floor vibrating quite heavily . . .
I am glad I never had to work there. Hand held, leaning on a pillar, available light.
