John Buxton’s Drawings

John Buxton provided many pen drawings of mills and mill machinery to the North East Mills Group based on contemporary and old photographs.  These were particularly valuable in the days before reproduction of photographs was cheap and effective but they continued to be used even when the group publication became full colour as they provide some wonderful views of our local mills.
