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.
