Ackroyd Street, Kenyon's Corn stores (Morley) (3 comments)
Colour imageMay 1972. View of Kenyon's Corn Stores on Ackroyd Street. A man and woman stand by the door. This long standing business originated in 1877 when John Kenyon, after 23 years experience as a woollen spinner at Peel Mill, bought a grocer's and off-licence shop at the end of Annie Street. Over the next 10 years he became a noted authority on poultry keeping and plants. Kenyon was elected to Morley Council in 1887 but died suddenly in 1894 aged 61. The business was continued by his son Horace, who expanded the corn distributing, poultry and vegetable growing side of the business in premises on Ackroyd Street. After Horace's death in 1927 the off-licence shop passed from the family business but the corn store and food stuff supply continued under Mrs Annie Kenyon, with Joseph Mackintosh as manager. Mackintosh purchased the business when Mrs Kenyon died in 1946, and was joined by his sons Albert & Keith . The business continued to expand becoming a major distributor of feeding for animals and fertilisers, and new modern premises were built on the Ackroyd Street site in 1965. The business still exists today (2007).

Administration block for the new Smallpox ward, alterations in progress (Killingbeck)
Black & White image19th April 1915. Image shows alterations in progress to the Administration block, contained within a new isolation hospital for Smallpox which included the farm buildings, a new temporary ward and a small mortuary. The Administration block had been converted from the farmhouse of Killingbeck Farm. The frontage extension was accompanied by more substantial building work at the rear of the house. The compound was distinctly separate from the nearby sanatorium. Killingbeck Sanitorium opened in 1904, originally as a Smallpox hospital, but a decision was made by the City Council, in 1912/13, to convert it to a treatment centre for Tuberculosis in accordance with the National Health Insurance Act. The building of the Smallpox isolation ward took place at the same time. The plans were approved on the condition that the main hospital, Killingbeck Sanatorium, would be vacated in the event of an epidemic of Smallpox as the new, single isolation Smallpox ward may be unable to handle the case-load. Although there was one particular outbreak of Smallpox that came close to this being put into practice, it never actually happened. The hospital closed in 1997 and the site is now a retail park. Additional information supplied by John Garnett (Source: The 50th Anniversary booklet of the opening of Seacroft and Killingbeck Hospitals, 1954.)
