Miners on Lords Hill in Coleford.

Lords Hill (42k)

Annie Brooks with her sons outside their home in Lords Hill Coleford approx 1905. The boys sitting on the doorstep in the picture were born in 1895 and 1896, hence the supposition that the photograph was taken around 1905.

Alan Roberts added (May 2008): " My father, Bob Roberts told me that the house formerly belonged to John Brown and the other house next door belonged to Dolly Adams. He thinks just after the Great War. My dad was born in Gloucester Road in 1924".

Sally Taylor added (December 2014): "...My father was John Brown. He never owned either of the houses, his was the house next door to the right of the picture where the railings are".

Many Thanks to Mark Powell for pointing out the correct location for this photo.
