Sally Woods (central figure in photo) was an “Ormskirk Gingerbread lady” grandmother to Danny & John Neville, see previous group photos. Sally would make the mixture for the gingerbreads at her home in Mill Street then take it to the ovens off Burscough Street passing through an alleyway alongside a beer house nicknamed “The Monkeys Nest” which stands to-day and serves as Newlands Tool & Hardware Store.
