A view inside the shop of Messrs. Musgrave's Atlas Mills. Atlas Mills was a complex of 8 mills mainly used as textile mills. Musgraves also made their own engines. The engines shown here were intended for the Oriental Spinning and Weaving Company of Bombay. Most of the site has been redeveloped as a supermarket and flats.
