Alf Cooke's Printing Works, Hunslet Road (Hunslet) (11 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. View shows the former Alf Cooke's Crown Point Printing Works on Hunslet Road, a Grade II listed building here occupied by Bemrose Cartons. Alf Cooke, born near Dewsbury Road in 1842, opened his first business on Hunslet Road in 1866, selling stationery and newspapers and doing letterpress printing. He later moved to larger premises on the east side of the road, but after a fire there moved to this site on the west side in 1881. Alf Cooke became Mayor of Leeds in 1890 but suffered another setback when his latest factory also burnt down, in 1894. However, this led to the building of the present factory on the same site, this time to the designs of architect Thomas Ambler, which was claimed to be the largest and most completely fitted printing works in the world. Alf Cooke died in 1902 but his business continued to expand until being taken over by the Bemrose Group, and later MY Cartons, who announced the closure of the factory in 2005.
