The Hollow Factory
This would have been the view from around where Throstle Bank Mill would have been. I have been after a picture of this card for a while now and this one was recently sent in by John W.
Hollow Brow, Newton, at the junction of Dukinfield Road and Newton Street. The tower of Flowery Field Church is in the centre background. On the right is the Ashton Brothers' Bayleyfield Mills. I am sure that the spire of St Stephens to be seen in-between Flowery Fields Tower and the factory chimney.
