This is a picture of New Lanark c.1905. It shows many interesting features including the chimney from the steam generation plant. The power from the plant went through a series of belts across the bridge to drive the mill machinery.
The foundations of Mill 4 are in this photograph. It was destroyed by fire in 1883. The other mills were designed in such a way to prevent fire from damaging the structure of the Mills. This was a major innovation and still a much admired feature of New Lanark to this day.
The large building in the foreground is the building for the Formation of Character.
