The picture is looking across the River Aire and the chimney's on the left are West Yorkshire Foundries. The tall thin one was near the weighbridge and served No 1 foundry(I think) The two smaller ones side by side on the right are No 8 foundry cupolas. On the left of the tall one, you can just make out No 3 foundry cupolas and on the leftof the picture the two side by side are No 6 foundry.All these were iron foundries I worked there 30 years 1974 to 2004
