The Willows, New Road
|This picture, taken outside the back door, date unknown, shows
Bert Mulley with Dorrie and Gwen the dog.|
Nowadays a large wistaria screens the back wall, which has been uniformly rendered, but still where the clapboard was, and above it to the roof, the wall is thin - just studwork with rendering outside and plasterboard inside.
|This picture, date unknown, was taken by the flint-faced stone wall which
still exists. Gwen the dog is unmistakeable; the lady could be Susie or Dorrie.|
There is a 6ft gate into the front yard, bricked up some time ago. You can just make out that the false upstairs window is in its 4-pane period.
To the far left you see one of the white uprights of the (later) signboard.
|Date unknown. The Goymers told me that Luther's wife, presumed to be the demonstrative lady here, was "on the stage in London". The other person is not recognisable.|
|Date unknown, but note that there are now some flowers to the left of the front door. Fred Mulley and Dorrie Goymer - from the confetti on his jacket I presume they are the happy couple, not father and bride!|
