c1950s. View shows boats at the wharf near Thwaite Mills, on the River Aire. Beyond the boats is the Row of cottages known as Dandy Row, which housed workers at Thwaite Mills, and were effectively on an island, being surrounded by the River Aire, the Aire & Calder Navigation, and the mill stream. They feature in displays at Thwatte Mills mow a museum, and were demolished in 1968. In the background is Skelton Grange 'A' power station, with two cooling towers visible. Four more towers were added when the 'B' power station was built in the early 1960s, one of which was later demolished around 1982. The power stations closed in 1995, and were then dismantled, but leaving behind the associated substation.
