Re: Help wanted to find photo

Hi Delilahcat, The photo I mentioned that I recall was a close up of the NCB vesting day sign on the Boldon Colliery main entrance gates, with numerous faces also in close up, a search for which has regrettably been unsuccessful. What I have found amongst my Boldon Colliery Band photographs is the p...

Re: Help wanted to find photo

I am sure that I have a photo of the event when the NCB ownership at Boldon Colliery was made public with the commemoration of a large sign to that effect at the colliery main entrance, to the best of my memory it shows officials, local people and the colliery band. I will have a thorough search and...

Re: Old Shopkeepers Remembered !

Harry Hogg's shop was on the corner of Wenlock Road and Newcastle Road, I knew him as a fellow playing member of the People's Mission Band in Fort Street at the Lawe Top from the middle 1950's for some years before I joined the RAF. He was a nice friendly chap and a good church man, and I always enj...

Re: Old Shopkeepers Remembered !

Who remembers Jack Stamp's newspaper shop in Cuthbert Street, and who might please have a photograph ? Also a snap of Coun. George Rossiter's wood and joinery place at the Smith Street end of Wilson Street ?

Re: What was The Winskills called?

Thanks Mr Smith, and his name is yet so familiar nearly a century after his death, wonder if he died 'in harness' being then only 53 ?

Re: What was The Winskills called?

It would be most interesting to be please informed who 'Mr Winskell' was and the period that he was the manager of the pub, he must have been a very popular chap for his name to stick for so many years as an alternative identify for this one time popular venue. I knew it very well indeed pre the 196...

Can you please tell me the name of the group on facebook ? I would like very much to see the 1500 piece collection, in return I can help you with copies of old maps of Shields, and maybe also be able to help with answers to some of the questions you have been asked.

Re: 1947 winter and sledging on 'Candy' or 'Teller' Bank

Still hoping that a reader may be able to please provide some clues etc as to why River Drive bank was so-called 'Candy' or 'Teller' Bank, it must presumably have some kind of basis for these nicknames. I seem to recall seeing a photograph in the Shields 'Gazette' from that time when a youngster, an...

The Roman Quay

The location of the Roman quay that served the supply fort on the Lawe has never been actually proven by excavation, and an important piece of local history yet remains to be found. I have not read of any real 'digs' to try and determine its actual position, which is presumed to have been in the are...

1947 winter and sledging on 'Candy' or 'Teller' Bank

I well remember sledging down River Drive bank, otherwise known to us as 'Candy' or 'Teller' bank ( I never knew why these names were used - does any reader ?). The winter of 1947 is remembered in particular, as the run down this marvellous slope attracted hundred's of local Lawe Topper kids with a ...
