General view of the room devoted to ’Textile machinery from the 19th and 20th centuries’

The contemporary history of Sabadell (19th-20th centuries) is inseparable from the history of the textile industry, the driving force behind change and growth in all its aspects: economic, social, demographic and urbanistic. Most of the working population were employed in the textile or its auxiliary industries. 

Different kinds of manual and mechanical looms are exhibited here, with other machines used to make textiles.
