This is one of the earliest photographs in the Zan archives. It shows the mill building with the old window frames together with two boarded up windows, before the Zan Clock was installed. The hand powered petrol pump is dispensing Pratt's Petroleum. The mill chimney is still at full height, it was later lowered twice to its current size. The three chimneys to the right in the distance belong to one of the old Wheelock salt works alongside the Trent and Mersey Canal - the area is now known as the Salties.
