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.

Arnold, E. J., Old Headquarters, Leathley Road (Hunslet)
Colour imageUndated. View from Costco's car park across Leathley Road to the rear of the old headquarters of E. J. Arnold, suppliers of registers, books and exercise books to the education establishments of Leeds. The firm has had a long association with Leeds since it moved here from Devon in 1870. The company strengthened and grew with the implications of the various Education Acts. The School Boards appointed Attendance Officers in 1880 which significantly boosted the consistency of school attendance, and therefore the need for E. J Arnold's products. Then, the Education Act of 1902 replaced the old School Boards with Local Education Authorities with more purchasing power, which extended nationwide. It became necessary to take on extra staff, and by May 1962 there were 1000 employees. George Arnold, the son of the founder, became Lord Mayor of Leeds from 1916 to 1917, and Pro-Chancellor of Leeds University from 1921 to 1926. Many of the printing workforce at E. J. Arnold's were relocated to the new Dewsbury Road 'Broadway' printing factory in 1961, just below the Broadway public house. They were to move again, eventually, to Hunslet Parkside.
