This collection of fibre based maps was prompted by a request from the curator of Mississippi Valley Textile Museum. Michael Rikley-Lancaster asked me to create a series of art works in response to the archival maps housed at the Museum. He was keen to set me to work bringing to light some fascinating items from the city of Almonte's visual history. My research into these maps has revealed the industrial and urban development brought about by the water power provided by the Mississippi River. The former Rosamond Wool Mill, which now houses the museum, would never have come into existence if it were not for this body of water.
