The photographer has chosen to remove the background, giving the impression the mill is standing on the hill.
I was delighted to see this picture, as I am transcribing my Uncle Stanley Simpson's life story (he died earlier this year aged 96) and I am editing a part where he describes working at Ebor Mill after returning from WW2! I am putting his story into a little self-published booklet just for the family, and I wonder if you might give me permission to use this picture. I would be delighted to forward either a copy of his story as it stands, or the final booklet, if it may be of interest to anyone there....he had an awe-inspiring memory, and it is a fascinating social history, especially of the area around Calverley and the textile industry at the time. Thank you for considering this.
Best wishes from Australia,
I believe this mill was owned by the Merral family. My paternal grandmother was Norah Irene Merrall who died in 1953. I would be delighted to have contact with any of my Merrall relatives.
Such a shame this building is now in ashes after this weekendes events.
About 8:30pm on 14th August a fire started on the third floor in Ebor Mill, which soon took control and has gutted the building. Photos of the Ebor Mill fire here...
