Burmantofts Works, seen from the cleared area adjacent to Bickerdike Road
Description:
Undated. Image shows chimneys in the background belonging to Burmantofts Works of the Leeds Fireclay Company Ltd. In the foreground, much of the area has been cleared to make way for the future Ebor Gardens Estate. The road on the left is Bickerdike Road, with Ironstone Street running form left to right in the centre. The building nearest the camera on the right is a chapel known as the Mission Rooms. This is situated between Bickerdike Street to its left and Wright Street to its right, and is numbered 43 Wright Street. Next to it are houses numbered 46 and 48 Bickerdike Street which form back to backs with 45 and 47 Wright Street. These buildings would also soon be demolished. Further back, Torre Road runs from left to right in front of the brickworks. Photograph courtesy of Terry Cryer.
