I still think the height of this building (compared to those around it) requires some explanation.

I suspect it has to do with the manufacturing or drying process for linoleum, which appears to involve hanging it up. The taller the room, the longer length that can be hung. E.g. see http://www.michaelportillo.co.uk/articles/art_nipress/lino.htm

A 1914/1915 map marks this as the "Angel Road Works (Linoleum ...)". I believe it was a linoleum factory belonging to Ridley, Whitley and Co.

Hi Tony D,



Thanks, it is the Angel Road Works. We can update the catalogue and the revised record with the correct location will appear here in due course. There was no subject information for this image in the original Aerofilms Ltd Register.



Yours, Katy

We have martyk to thank for this one. It was a good spot - the reservoirs have really changed the look of the area.

Barges, not narrow boats. Several factories, flattish landscape. Aire & Calder Navigation?

Was R.A.F. Cardington (Balloon centre). The large 'shed' middle right was the Balloon hangar. The buildings between it and the canal were for making Gas. Haven't been near for many years but believe I'm correct.

I am sorry but I don't agree. I served at RAF Cardington for nearly 3 years in the late 1980s (it has since been turned into a housing estate). The landscape is all wrong, Cardington was not close to canals and the nearest river the Ouse was about a mile away. The two massive airship hangars still stand, but are not depicted here. The main administration block also still stands, but is not depicted here. There was another large structure behind the administration block, since demolished but it is not depicted here. I have consulted an OS map of the area from 1919-20 and 1986 and they confirm that the canal and river system shown in this picture are not at Cardington.
