Sound: Calton Weaver
Did You Know? - The Calton weavers were a community of handweavers established in the community of Calton, then in Lanarkshire just outside Glasgow, Scotland in the 18th century.
In 1787 the weavers went on strike. Troops opened fire on the demonstrators and six weavers were killed.
In the early 19th century, many of the weavers emigrated to Canada, settling in Carleton Place and other communities in eastern Ontario, where they continued their trade.
