Alice Brown born 1904 and Elizabeth Brown born 1908 in New Springs.

Born in an age when even little girls wore clogs.

Nellie Orrell had a shop in Scot Lane Aspull which was crammed from floor to ceiling with every kind of thing you can imagine, Batteries, Gas Mantles, Safety Pins and of course Clog Irons. If you renewed your irons in good time a pair of clogs could last a lifetime.
