Caption: "The Textile Room." From text: "The [Hull House Labor] Museum was opened in November, 1900, and from the first, five departments were planned, though, owing to lack of space and equipment, only that of the textiles was developed to any extent during the first winter. In one room were placed various appliances for spinning and weaving, largely collected from the vicinity itself. Every Saturday evening people from the neighborhood who had been expert spinners or weavers in their own country came to demonstrate the different processes to the visitors who arrived in large numbers.
