About this image
A Mr Roy Taylor sent us this comment: 'I believe the fishmonger is my great grandfather Samuel Hodges who had a fish shop in Station Road Hadfield in the early 1900. My grandmother used to accompany him sometimes against her wishes, as the other children used to tease her by singing 'Here comes Mary Ellen selling fish and kippered herring'. My sister remembers seeing the picture at my grandmothers house and asking her about it.'
This picture (which is one of the favourites on the web-site!) was supplied by Glossop Library, who did not have any details about the location or photographer. A gentleman viewing the web-site recognised the picture (and many others of Hadfield) as those once owned by a Mr Lee, who once lived facing the old hall, Hadfield. Mr Lee had said that this picture was located in Lambgates, Hadfield. It is believed to be looking down Lambsgate from the junction with Station Road.
