Show Map

Leeds Industrial Museum

Canal Road, Armley, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS12 2QF

By the end of the First World War the city of Leeds had produced 53 million shirts, 2500 field guns and 566,000 tonnes of completed ammunition to support the war effort. Over the 4 years of warfare Leeds factories had continuously churned out supplies to keep allied soldiers warm, clothed and well armed.

As the Armistice approaches we are taking this time to commemorate the role of workers in the First World War with a vibrant installation of red and yellow poppies made by local communities. The yellow poppy, an idea from the local community, honours the valuable contribution of workers who often had "canary" yellow skin from working with materials such as cordite.
