    production that was not fully aware of that takes place in Fall River, particularly that happens within the old mills. The mills were always described to me as empty shells, symbolizing a once great past of Fall River’s textile renaissance. I think now through visiting the mills and seeing what my peers were able to capture from other mills, I have a little different perspective of them.

    to work every day for what they felt was the best paycheck they ever made. The mill was more than work; it was family, life and salvation. It was baseball games, childhood pranks, poverty, singers, and love. From the mills of Greenleaf, to the textile union strikes, to President Roosevelt changing labor laws, the mills were a legacy of hard work. Americans worked hard, suffered lots and never complained. This was mill life and many still look back on that life as the most they ever had. This…
