Death of a Joiner
The death occurred on Sunday, at his residence, Olive Terrace, Broadbottom, of Mr George Harrop, a highly esteemed resident of the village, who was in his 79th year. Until some years ago, he was employed as a joiner at Bankwood Printworks, Broadbottom, but left his place here following the amputation of a leg. His wife died some years ago, and he leaves an upgrown family. Mr Harrop was one of the oldest members of the Broadbottom and Hattersley Conservative Club, where the flag was hoisted half-mast out of respect to his memory.

NB: My dad has a story of how the amputation took place on the kitchen table. Truth or fable, it might be the former, given the lack of a National Health Service at the time and the condition from which my g-grandfather eventually died.
