This photo was donated by Mrs Pickles who gave us a vivid
account of her working life during W11 ;
"During the war I was a weaver at Eddie
Denison's mill on Kirk Lane, Yeadon.
I worked from 7am in the morning until 7pm
at night with half an hour for breakfast and an hour for dinner.
I didn't see
much daylight as all the windows were painted black.
Most of the time I was weaving khaki
cloth for Army shirts and greatcoats. this is the only photo I have of me as a
mill girl, taken outside our house on Swain Hill Street".
