Rank's Solent Flour Mills, Western Docks, Southampton, were completed in 1934, the first building on the Docks Extension Industrial Estate. The flour mills and warehouse were heavily damaged by an air raid on 30 November 1941 and put out of action. Mills in Bath and Warmley, near Bristol, were brought into production to compensate for the loss of production here and at Joseph Rank's mills in London. After World War II the Solent Flour Mills were rebuilt - and it seems, from comparing the 1948 and 1951 shots - extended.
