|||Greenside Street no.39 (Wortley)
This building, once known as Tingle's House, was where Low Wortley Industrial Cooperative Society was established. It was originally called 'The Wortley Cloth Manufacturing and Provision Society'. The society had a rule that all their cloth should be sold at eleven shillings per yard. They began business from these premises in 1854 and also began to sell groceries. Eventually, after six or seven years the Society moved to other premises, until it was necessary to build a new larger store at the cost of £5,000 in Lower Wortley. The foundation stone was laid by Mr Abraham Lightowler, who had been president of the society for seventeen years, in 1892. A John William Tingle was residing at the house as listed in Robinson's directory of Leeds for 1899. He Was a Tailor.
