The Windmill - For centuries grain has been ground into flour in windmills or water powered mills. It was only the advent of steam power and later electric motors to power the grinding wheels that lead to the demise of the visually attractive and historically important buildings. This depiction is based upon a mill close tot he WBritain factory and shows the miller, traditionally dressed, holding his wooden bladed flout shovel and sticking out his chest with pride. His assistant is moving a hessian sack of grain on a traditional sack barrow towards the weighing scales, whilst the mill cat is ever watchful for mice.
