Description:
November 1918. Image shows the interior of Manor Mill, located at the top of Kirk Lane. Above the looms are strings of bunting and other decorations in celebration of peace and the end of the Great War. Manor Mill dates from 1862 and was built by Edward and Thomas Bolton. From 1865 Manor Mill was rented by James Ives and it was the first Yeadon mill to install a power loom.

My Nanny (Grandmother) said that the workers at the Mills were very good at lip-reading and signing because the noise of the mills was so loud it was deafening. She also taught me how to thread a needle by bending the end of the cotton over. She said that was the way the mill-workers would have done it. (Well, she did like a good story!).
