Bank Street, looking towards Brunswick Street (Morley) (1 comment)
Colour imageFebruary 1966. Looking down Bank Street to its junction with Brunswick Street. Three small boys in short trousers stand in the foreground of this photograph of steeplejack maintenance men at work on Benn and Webster's Victoria Mills chimney. By this time quite a few of the town's typical shoddy mills had closed down but Benn and Webster's kept running until the late 1970s. They closed in a peculiar way, keeping running until the fortnight's annual holiday at Morley Feast, with workers getting their holiday with pay but being told not to report back for work after the holiday. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
