My working class background is something I am very proud of. My ancestors worked in the textile mills in Bradford the 18 and 1900's and I feel that this has some significance! Something my tutor said ' You cant move forward till you go back' has struck a cord with me. I have great respect for these mill workers, the conditions they worked in were not easy. The mill owners profited well from the industry but the workers were poorly paid and I hope to do some more investigative research into the social situation of my ancestors as well as the work they did in the mills.
