Teresa Willert photo produced from the original on the left by John Doxey

Teresa Willert standing in the doorway of the family home which was number three Lamberts Cottages, Doncaster Road Thrybergh.
David Culley writes:-
The photo was taken by her son in law Stan Bailey and passed to me by his son Ted. Note the tram lines! Upstairs the floor was level with the bottom of the window so you had to kneel or sit on the floor to look out and of course the ceiling used at least part of the roof space.


The Willert family appeared in Thrybergh in 1891

Notice the millstones no doubt from Thrybergh water mill. I believe there may be some remains of this building but Iíve never got round to searching the OS marked site.
