James Ives was born in 1829 and was the founder of the company James Ives & Sons in 1848.
They owned Manor Mill and Leafield Mill, he died in 1904.

1: 2: An undated photo of James Ives located I would have said in his mill in Yeadon. 
It looks as if an Ives salesman is showing cloth to a buyer with James Ives just quietly looking on.
I am afraid that there is not a date and no location shown with this photograph and no explanation as to whats happening, but, its a good photo anyway
3: Members of the family of mill owner James Ives, the boy standing at the back holds a croquet mallet, the woman in the centre (Mrs Ives) holds a young boy and a tennis racquet.
4: James Ives on holiday in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
It would have then been called Ceylon.
