This mural in Grand Street, Hilden, celebrates the linen and thread industry which flourished here up until the last century. Barbour threads were world renowned and the large mills meant many families were drawn to the area for employment. As a result, the company established a school for the children. That is the building featured in the bottom of the mural.
It is not too far from here but how long it remains is anyone's guess as new homes have been built all around it.
