Queen street, a painting by Eric Farr (Morley)
Colour imageUndated. A painting of Queen Street by Eric Farr, done in the late 1960s from a photograph taken in 1887 at the time of the Golden jubilee of Queen Victoria's reign. The original picture shows more street decoration for the Jubilee and there are more people in the street. On the left is the old building of the Midland Bank, then the Blue Riband Coffee House; beyond this are some old cottages that were pulled down for the 1899 Co-op building. Next is the junction between Queen Street and Albion Street and then, in its own small grounds, Morley Manor House dating back to the seventeenth century. This was the birthplace of Sir Titus Salt, founder of Saltaire model village. During the last years of its existence it was lived in by a succession of local doctors and then demolished by Morley Co-op for its new 'Emporium'. The large mill chimney belongs to Hope Foundry and the high roofed building to the right of this was the new Queen's Hotel built in 1880. Across Queen Street is Wesley Street Mill, at this time with only a small chimney, then various small stone and wooden shops ending with the spare ground on the right where eventually Morley Town Hall was to be built between 1892 and 1895. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
