At the right edge the buildings stand on the future site of the Majestic Cinema and Ballroom which did not open until June, 1922.

Albert Mills, fire of 1961 (Morley) (1 comment)

The view looks down Wellington Street to Queen Street and shows the fire engine and part of the Town Hall at the right edge. The fire was so fierce that the dome of the Town Hall caught alight and was destroyed. It was rebuilt in 1962. What remained of the Albert Mill was demolished in 1961 and 1962. The construction of Morrisons Supermarket began on the site in 1972. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
