Yesterday: a Cannon Mills Weave Room in 1928

Mary Sechler provided this photograph of people who worked in a weave room at Cannon Mills Co. on Nov. 1, 1928. Mary’s nephew, Andy Sechler, came across two old photographs when he was taking care of his father’s estate — this one and a 1928 photograph of a spinning room at Cannon Mills. It’s thought these weave and spinning rooms were part of the huge Plant No. 1 in Kannapolis, but Mary is hoping someone out there has more information to go with the pictures, which she has passed on to the historical society. Andy Sechler’s father, Robert ‘Junior’ Sechler Jr., and grandfather Robert Sechler Sr. both worked at Cannon Mills.
