Image Number:





Island History Trust Image Collection


McDougalls Wheatsheaf Mills, before the First World War, and before the white silos were built (that was in 1935). These buildings were erected about 1900, following a fire in 1899 which destroyed the original mill on the site, erected in the 1860s when the McDougalls first came to Millwall. by J. Studd
