Splendid Railway Table Cloth

The Sydney Gazette Saturday 21 May 1836 p. 2.

A splendid table cloth, representing a portion of the railway, with carriages, &c., is now in the loom at Touge, near Middleton.

The drawing is almost as accurate as if penciled ; the colours are extremely brilliant and distinct, and the portion already executed presents a panoramic view of the scene.

The jacquard with which it is being woven, the design, and the workmanship are all executed by Lancashire artisans.
