5th October 1999 The Italianate towers situated at Tower Works, Globe Road, Holbeck (the makers of needles and steel pins). The larger one, known as the Giotto Tower (1899), is based on a tower at the Florence Cathedral (1334). Its purpose was as an extract ventilation shaft. The smaller tower on the left is a chimney (1864) replicating a 12th century Lamberti tower in Verona. In the distance are rows of terraced houses in Holbeck.
