Armley Congregational Church, Hall Lane. (Armley) (14 comments)
Black & White imageView of Armley Congregational Church in Hall Lane. On an O.S. map for 1986 it was recorded as the Armley United Reformed Church. A national split within the Methodist community meant the formation of splinter groups. The Methodist New Connexion in Armley was one of these and they were responsible for building two new chapels, this one in Hall Lane and the Bethseda Chapel in Theaker Lane. The foundation stone was laid on Saturday 30th January 1897 and the church opened its doors on 12th March 1898. The Rev.W.L.Tonge was in residence here at the time the church opened. The church is constructed in brick with stone dressings and housed an organ gifted by Joseph Hepworth, Esq. J.P. of Headingley House. It originally had a spire erected on the square structure to the right. An early picture of the church and more information can be found in 'Armley Through the Camera' by T.Kirby. The church has been converted into residential flats in recent years.

Armley Jail, Postcard (Armley) (2 comments)
Colour imageUndated. Postcard view of Armley Jail taken from the recreation ground in front. The architects were Perkins and Backhouse. It opened in 1847 and cost £43,000. This was for the land and the buildings. The green structure to the right of the brick wall is a shelter built in the recreation ground and marked on a map dated 1908. Between the building of the prison and the wall of the recreation ground the 'jail field' can just be seen. Armley Goal was the incarceration place for most Yorkshire Suffragettes. Lilian Lenton and Leonora Cohen were both jailed here and began hunger strikes. Prison authorities asked if they could take finger prints of 'May Dennis' (Lilian Lenton) before her release under the 'Cat and Mouse Act'. The answer came back yes. It was also suspected that the covert photograph of Lenton was taken in Armley Goal. The Prison Commission stipulated that 'Photographs should be taken in every case. However they cannot be taken by force but instructs the officer who takes the photograph to take a photograph without the knowledge of the prisoner'. Leonor Cohen and four other suffragettes not only refused food but also drink. The goal was also a popular place for suffragette rally's and protests.

Avro Yeadon, staff photograph (Yeadon) (15 comments)
Black & White imagec1940s. Group portrait of some of the young women who were part of a staff of more than 17,500 people employed at Avro Yeadon (A.V. Roe) during the years of the Second World War. The Avro factory was built in 1939 close to Yeadon Aerodrome. It was one of several nation-wide 'shadow factories', as they were called, and also the largest in Europe, occupying a site of around 34 acres. Many of the workers were female and a proportion were local girls. However, huge numbers of workers arrived for their shifts in special buses, travelling from all over West Yorkshire. Third from the right on the front row is Audrey Tunnington whose home was in Edgeware Mount, Leeds 8. The Ministry of Aircraft Production (MAP) also built temporary homes/accommodation for workers who lived some distance away from the Avro assembly plant, for example, on the Westfield Estate in Yeadon and Greenbanks at Horsforth. Between 1939 and its closure in 1946 around 700 Avro Lancaster bombers and 4,500 Avro Ansons were assembled here by women such as these. A partially built Lancaster is visible in the background.
