Painting of Queen Street at the time of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubileet

1887c. This view is based on an old photograph which was taken before the Town Hall was built. It was painted in the late 1960s by the local Morley artist Eric Farr and it stood over the mantelpiece in local historian David Atkinson’s living room for many years. Now it is a part of his archive. In the middle left on the side of the street are some old cottages, just before the junction of Albion Street with Queen Street. Beyond that, behind the walls is the old Manor House where Titus Salt was born. The smoking chimney on the right is a part of the Wesley Street Mills.
