William Woodruff, the son of a weaver, was born on a pallet of straw at the back of the mill and two days later his mother was back at work. Life was tough for the family in 1920's Blackburn -- a treat was sheep's head or cow heel soup -- and got worse when his father lost his job when the cotton industry started its terminal decline.
