Description:
1954. Aerial view of Bean Ing Mill seen in the centre of the image. It dates from 1792 and was built by Benjamin Gott as the world's first woollen mill. The mill was demolished in the 1960s and the Yorkshire Post building now occupies the site. Wellington Bridge, Wellington Road crosses the River Aire left of the mill. The Leeds and Liverpool Canal is visible across the bottom left hand corner. bottom right are railway lines coming in to Central Station. The land opposite the mill on the opposite side of the river was Gott's Field, at this time part of the railway. This is now the site of City Island, a residential development. Wellington Street runs across behind Bean Ing Mill and Westgate Street towards the top right hand corner. Wellington Foundry is adjacent to the river on the left and the square building top left is an Engineering works. On the triangular site, top right, is Westgate Mills and at the other side of the road, Corona works.
