Mrs Mary Wilson ( nee Grady ), mother of Mary Ethel Wilson, tends to the poultry on her smallholding, referred to as De Trafford farm. Date of the photo is unspecified but possibly mid to late 1920's. Mrs Wilson and her family moved to this farm around 1908, after living in a terraced house, which no longer exists, close by the Dover lock in Abram. The flooded area is possibly the area on the 1907 OS map of Hindley marked as 712.....Although some may disagree, I'm reasonably confident that the embankment visible behind Mrs Wilson would have been the scene of the 1900 railway accident.
