Certificate, Third Place, Class 316, Edinburgh and Midlothian Annual Competitive Industrial Exhibition

This certificate was won by Jessie Wilson in 1924.   Both Jessie Wilson and her mother knitted Sanquhar gloves and socks for a living in the years after the First World War.  In the 1920s they received 2/6 (12 1/2p) for making a pair of gloves with initials or a full name worked at the wrist.  The person placing the order would supply the wool.  When orders were scarce they knitted gloves with 'Sanquhar' at the wrist for general sale.
