The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 78



Rate paid.—2¾d.

Remarks.—This was actually made for 2¾d., which includes machining the gores, the odd pieces at the end of each rib, and the rosette-pieces and the button-band, all out of strips of the same stuff, then sewing on to the frame. The work is very intermittent, and has to be brought from and returned to the factory. The light silk is the stuff in the loose condition as supplied to the worker. Cotton sun-shades of this size are made for 1s. 1d. per dozen, being 7d. for machining the eight parts, and 6d. for fixing on frame and making oddments.
