OLD ALWOODLEY - in Photographs


Slabbering Baby 1953
34. Mrs. Verity and Mr Digby Firth at the Slabbering (Slavering) Baby, Mill Fall Cottage. This press photograph was taken in 1953 as the poor lady had only recently returned from hospital, the first time she had left the famous tea-shop for nearly thirty years! She had first started working there in 1901. The shop declined after her death becoming an unfortunate target for vandals.
