Journal of notes made in England by Camille Koechlin on the premises of Messrs. Thomson, Chippindall & Co. near Manchester

Camille Koechlin, a member of a textile-manufacturing family from Alsace, used this journal to record his observations on a trip to England during which he visited the premises of Thomson, Chippindall & Co. near Manchester. In it he describes the weaving, dyeing and bleaching processes and the machinery used. Many Norman industrialists followed Camille Koechlin’s example and travelled to England to find out more about the English innovations that were likely to be introduced in their own firms.
