1185 : Stone-Storied Mills

2014.0715.21 : Escape From The Mill. 35mm B&W Negative Scan Circa 1969 
At one time there were hundreds of textile mills in each West Yorkshire town. Stone-storied mills capped every street and lane, discharging waves of mill girls with each passing shift. Now the mills that remain are half demolished or converted into smart apartments for accountants and management trainees commuting to Leeds and Manchester.

That's a scary looking fire escape.
