Island History Trust Image Collection


Outings from the ‘Deadmans' (Anchor and Hope) in Newby Place, Isle of Dogs, c1919-1920. Standing on the left, Mary Wright, (nee Newberry); with her is her sister Lardie (Liz), who had been taught to box by her father, because she was the eldest child and he had badly wanted a son - so she could (and did) fight like a man. Seated in front, third from right, is Mrs Newberry. The Newberrys lived in Hanbury Buildings, almost opposite ‘The White Horse'.
