Albert Road, view looking westwards towards Morley old gasworks
c.1962/3. A young boy stands on land off Albert Road where the former pit tip of Morley Main Colliery is being landscaped to provide more area for the parking of lorries and earth moving plant. The view is looking westwards towards Morley old gasworks and its manager's house, and to the beginnings of the development of the site in Valley Road for Orcal 'Oil Recoveries'. Immediately behind these are sidings for storing railway excursion carriages. The slope up to the top of Daisy Hill shows old houses here being demolished under the slum clearance act, while new housing has been built along the continuation of New Bank Street. Daisy Hill Mill chimney can be seen and in the distance are the tall chimneys of Laneside Mills. There is also part of a pit tip of a Churwell colliery, a path round which was another approach to Daisy Hill. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
