Armley Mills, mill chimney (Armley)
c.1969. View of mill buildings and chimney at Armley Mills. The chimney at this time is at full height as the photograph is probably taken just after the closure of the mill by Bentley and Tempest. Next to the chimney base is a covering for the flue entry. A fire escape can be seen on the east wall of the mill.

Ashworth Street (Woodhouse) (3 comments)
Undated. View of Ashworth Street which ran from St. Marks Road, down across Holborn Street and ended at the back gardens of houses which fronted Institution Street. The back of the Methodist Church is visible in the distance, which fronted Woodhouse Street. Further into the distance Quarry Mount School can be seen, the building with the clock tower. To the right of the tower, on the skyline is the top thirty or forty feet of the Leeds Corporation refuse destructor chimney. It is located on Meanwood Road in Meanwood Valley and believed to be the tallest chimney for many miles at approximately 240 feet (73 metres).
