The first postcard shows a factory through the Arches which could be Otto Monsted's Magarine factory depending on the date of the postcard.
(Thanks Tom and Dave for the info below).
On this site originally stood the Olive Tree Public House before the site was redeveloped for Monsted's factory.
Looking towards Hattersley
How it looks today
Otto Monsted was a Dane went into partnership with local man John Broomer, operating a margarine factory at Godley, (in an old hat factory) near
Hyde. Broomer sold his share of the business shortly after but is credited for having established the first margarine works in Britain.
Looking towards Hyde centre
The Godley works was closed in 1921 and shortly afterwards taken over by Walls then its various successors (Birdseye Walls, Mattessons Walls, Kerry Foods)and at some stage the original building was demolished.
