Where There’s Muck There’s Culture
This is a scan of a negative of mine from 1970 featuring a Wool Merchant’s warehouse in Halifax. The building is on the corner of the delightfully named Mulcture Hall Road. I always think that the word Mulcture sounds like a West Yorkshire mixture of muck and culture, but in fact it referred to a toll that millers were entitled to back in the seventeenth and eighteenth century. Holdsworth’s have long vacated the building which, some 30 years ago, was converted into a hotel which still bears the name “The Wool Merchant”.
