Connecting drain trap to sewer line


I have an older house (built in the 1950's) and there are a lot of quirky things about it; one being the bathroom sink.

The draintrap had a rust hole in it and had to be taken out. Their wasn't a connector into the sewer line like I've seen in all the videos/articles online. It just went into the wall. I had to cut out a section of the wall and the pipe just seems to go directly into the big waste line. My question is....how do I tie it into the sewer line? Right now there is some kind of pipe shaped metal mesh that is around the sewer line and kind of goes around the trap pipe.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Pictures would help---

You will probably need to cut out the old T and convert to PVC using rubber 'Fernco' type fittings--

Tell us more and post a picture if you can.

Here are 2 more pics. The pipes at the top right are from an old system back when it was first built. It isn't connected. This pipe is just one that curves around.

that looks like a lead joint, kind of amazed you'd have that in a house built in the 50's. you're gonna have to expose the cast iron that pipe connects to and hook some new stuff up to it. open up the wall a little more and take a picture for us
