Place: Holly Tree Inn, Over Hackney, Darley Dale, Matlock
Property / Street / Road: -
Date: 1913 - 1914
Description/Historical Information: Outside the inn is a dray belonging to Joseph Boden of Darley Bridge. The landlord, Thomas Stephen Bridge, was 24 in 1911. He married Sarah Alice Fleet at All Saints' in 1910. He was granted a transfer of the licence from William Holmes at Matlock's Brewster Sessions in February 1913. The two children standing in the doorway are Tom and Sarah's children, Dan and Ida. It is difficult to see her, but their mother is standing behind them.
Thomas S Bridge joined the 19th Canadian Infantry Battalion in Toronto, Canada in 1915 although his wife Sarah Alice remained in Matlock. He went to Port Sydney in Ontario where he later retired. He died and was buried there in 1959.
There is a picture of Sarah Alice with her family on VLA5115.
There is also a photo of the Hackney Foresters Football Team, plus Tom Bridge, outside the Holly Tree on VLA5264.
