5: Young woman condenser minding in Manor Mill.

6: View of Manor Mill from Kirk Lane, the shop on the right has an advertisement for Zebra grate polish, a black lead product used on cast iron fireplaces and ranges.

7: Mule spinning at the mill.
The mule was invented by Samuel Cromptton in the 1770s, the automatic mule was patented in 1825 by Richard Roberts.
It was one of the many innovations which changed the production of cloth from a cottage industry into a factory based operation, contributing to the Industrial Revolution.

8: Photo of a man sat "perching", this was the final process in the production of cloth, the finished fabric is draped over a perch table and closely inspected for any tiny faults.

My late father [Amos Allan Denison] spoke of his father Benjamin Kitson Denison as being in an owner partnership of Manor Mill, Yeadon in the late 1800's. Is anyone able to shed any light on this? Thank you
