Barnbow No. 1 (Leeds) National Filling Factory, Police Checkpoint (Cross Gates) (2 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. Image shows police checks taking place at Barnbow No. 1 (Leeds) National Filling Factory. Security was obviously a priority and the site was enclosed by barbed wire with only two entrances, controlled by the Police Department. One entrance was for general purposes and the other solely for vehicles. The Police Department comprised a superintendent and three inspectors and a female superintendent who was in charge of the police women employed by the factory. Everyone entering the site had to have an official permit and in this image a vehicle is being held up while its two occupants are satisfying police that they are on authorised business.
