A mechanical loom weaving a floral pattern called "jacquard", necessitating a complex mechanism and repartition of the threads. On the sides of the machine are three characters, a man and two women: the man is wearing a three piece suit with a top hat, and the ladies are both wearing short-brimmed bonnets which tie under the chin. One of them, turning her back to the viewer, can be seen wearing a crinoline because of the width of her skirts, even though they are partially out of frame. Jacquard used very early form of computer.
