The map links you to Victoria Road, one of the main roads in Saltaire, serving the Titus Salt mill. However, Alfred Scott’s factory was a short distance to the west in Hirst Wood, another district of Shipley; it was on the north side of Hirst Wood Road. The original factory, as shown in the 1913 photo in the Jeff Clew’s book “The Scott Motorcycle. The Yowling Two Stroke” (page 58) is still recognisable, especially the angular roof line, with south facing windows, although the building has been somewhat extended in recent years.
