|Blood Chief by Bodmer.|
The Stroud broadcloth had its edges bound when first dyed which created white edges. The Indians used the white edges as extra decoration.
There is still a company,WSP Textiles in the area producing fabric...the bright yellowy green for Dunlop tennis balls and the green beige for billiard tables.
Who would have thought that a little bit of Stroud is not only in our history books but is on the tables at Monte Carlo , the centre court of Wimbledon and now at The London Olympics !
Ps. A big Hello to my readers from Russia, I spent some time in Russia in 1993 and loved it and I found everyone extremely warm and friendly...One day I'll visit again. Thankyou for reading, I almost have more readers from Russia than England !
