    Victoria & Hunslet Mills. Atkinson street and Goodman street. Leeds


    Bit of history:

    The building at the front was originally built as Victoria flax mill circa 1860-70 on the junction of Goodman Street with Atkinson Street.
    This was occupied in the 1930',40's and 50's by a tailoring company called Botterill & Senior. This is the bit known as RH Bruce.

    The building at the rear backing onto the river Aire was known as Hunslet mills. latterly this was a blanket weavers called Dodgeson and Hargreaves.

    Sydney.A.Smith, Ladies Skirt and Coat manufacturers also occupied part of the Goodman street side in the 1950's.

    Part of the site was also used by Boyd Thomas, cloth finishers in the 1940's
