Armley Road Improvement. (Armley)
Black & White image20th September 1937. View of the Armley Road Improvement area, a locality known locally as the Maltkins. To the right is land that has been cleared, and in the main view there is a grassed area surrounded by iron railings with part of large house behind. This was Wellgarth House, 161 Armley Road, and was the home of Archibald Haddow, physician and surgeon, and James Haddow, dental surgeon. Dr. Archibald Haddow was very well known General Practioner in the area. Along with his colleague Dr. Ian M. D. Grieve he noted the high incidence of serious pulmonary disease amongst his patients. This they rightly attributed to the asbestos factory in the area, J. W. Roberts of Midland Works, who manufactured insulation mattresses for steam engines. As far back as 1929 Dr. Haddow quoted a case at a meeting of the British Medical Association "in which the curious bodies were found in a man who was not employed in the industry, but who lived next door to an asbestos factory . . . " In more recent decades the tragic effect of asbestos dust on the health of the people of this part of Armley has been well documented and the subject of several court cases and numerous claims for compensation. The fight for justice for the victims of Asbestosis is still ongoing.
