Off the picture at number 12 was the premises of Alice Mann (widow of James Mann) and from 1834 partner with Joshua Hobson, both involved in radical political activities. Both were founders of the Chartist movement in Leeds. It very likely James Mann was also a leader of the Luddites in Leeds and very likely alice led a disturbance in Briggate in 1812 and called herself Lady Ludd.
