Chapel Hill, from a painting by Eric Farr (Morley)
Colour imageUndated. Image shows a painting by Eric Farr, done in the early 1970s, taken from an 1884 picture looking down Chapel Hill. This original photograph shows where shops that separated Brunswick Street from Chapel Hill, at the bottom of Scatcherd Hill, had been demolished and Cheapside that replaced them was built in 1895. The beginning of the long series of steps up to Bank Street is shown and some wooden sheds for boot repairers. On the opposite side of the road, the block before the turn in to Station Road still stands but the red brick shops further up the hill were demolished before the Second World War and replaced by advertisement hoardings. New shops were also built facing the bottom of Chapel Hill. The two buildings on Dawson Hill in the background are Morley Hall, still a private house at this time, and the Rehoboth Chapel. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Christmas Decorations in Scarth Gardens, Scatcherd Park, Scatcherd Hill and on Morley Town Hall (Morley) (2 comments)
Colour imageDecember 1966. Image shows Christmas decorations in Scarth Gardens, Scatcherd Park, Scatcherd Hill and on Morley Town Hall taken just after dusk. Headlights and tail lights of vehicles on Scatcherd Hill can be seen, whereas the outline of vehicles not moving can be seen in full light. Bulbs at a low level were subject to vandalism so, as time went by, the Christmas decorations were put at a higher level and even the Christmas trees on the Town Hall steps were abandoned. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Dawson Hill, Dawson House (Morley)
Colour imageMay 1967. The front of Dawson House (and rag warehouse behind) on Dawson Hill after the removal of the buildings on the roadside for widening in the Scatcherd Hill part of Morley Bottoms. In looking down Scatcherd Hill from its junction with Dawson Hill this house would formerly have been obscured by the Scatcherd Hill buildings. In 1967 when this photo was taken the buidings have been replaced by a wider road, a wider pavement and a bulb and shrubbery banking between two sandstone walls. Cheapside can be seen in Morley Bottoms and Bank House on Bank Street behind. Some of the new flats built on Bank Avenue (formerly Jackson Lane) are also visible. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Dawson Hill, view from (Morley)
Colour imageOctober 1966. Looking from Dawson Hill across Queen Street (here Scatcherd Hill) to St. Mary's-in-the-Wood Church and the Morley Observer Printing Works on top of Troy Hill. The newspaper works occupied a building which was formerly the New Town School i.e. the Sunday and Day School of Morley Old Chapel (St. Mary's) which became redundant when the new Sunday School was built on Commercial Street opposite the Public Library. When this photograph was taken, the old shops from the junction of Queen Street and Dawson Hill through to the traffic lights in Morley Bottoms had just been demolished, but no attempt to widen the road and pavement or beautify the demolition site had yet been made. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
