Sophy's cottage, Dalby

Date(s): late 19th-early 20th century

Creator(s): unknown photographer

Scope & Content: A note on the back of the photograph reads:- 'Sophy was a real character, I knew her well, but can't remember her surname. She looked after the chapel in Dalby and cleaned it. Her cottage was just beyond the chapel and is now demolished. It was between the chapel and church, topside of road. She used to put on a new skirt every so often but never took the old one off, so consequently she had dozens on. She didn't even take them off at night'. (Mr Tom Dodd, Peel, 27.08.57.).
