Ackroyd Street, Kenyon's Corn stores (Morley) (2 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).

Ackroyd Street, Morley Friends' Adult School (Morley) (1 comment)
Black & White imagec1902. Morley Friends' Adult School and children from around Charles Street at about the time of the coronation of King Edward VII in 1902. The memorial stone is just below the level of the iron railings at the right hand side. The members of the Adult School also collected rent from two wooden lock-up shops that can be seen on the left of the picture. That next to the Adult School was a barber's shop and it lasted much longer than the building next door. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Ackroyd Street, number 20, grocery shop and off license (Morley) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. View of number 20 Ackroyd Street, a grocery business and off licence. Ackroyd Street is visible on the far right, but there is an entrance on Annie Street, seen in the foreground. To the left the shop is at the junction with Annie Square. In Kelly's Directory of the West Riding of Yorkshire for 1917 the shop was run by Horace Kenyon, Grocer and Wine & Spirit Merchant. There is some faded advertising on the exterior wall. At the right edge of the image there is the stone built Salvation Army Hall in Ackroyd Street. The foundation stone for this was laid in 1907 and the building replaced the old barracks in Albion Street.
