Women tending machines - material (?) on floor, no. 2

Two women and a man stand at machines in what may be a spinning room of a textile mill in Utica, New York. The woman in the center is handling a length of white material at a cylindrical machine suspended from the ceiling while similar material lies at her feet. In the background to the left, material is stacked in a bin and on a table. A man stands behind the table. In the background to the right, a woman is busy working at a machine.
