Re: Anthony Edward Boyd Smith and family

Any help appreciated please.

Inventions
The man who invented cat's eyes got the idea when he saw a cat facing him in the road. If the cat had been facing the other way, he'd have invented a pencil sharpener.. Ken Dodd

Re: Are they needed?

Ralph,I had a similar experience recently. For a number of years I had been trying to find OH's great grandmother Lucy but she seemed to have disappeared off the face of the earth. I put out a request for info on another site, Brit-Gen about four or five years ago without too much success. Then back...

Re: Old Cinemas

Looking at my copy of Cinemas of South Tyneside (D Johnson 1992) I see that the Theatre Royal was used for films from about 1921, but its history as a theatre goes back much further. I recently came across a reference to its origins in about 1866 when the arch...

Re: Caught by the camera again

Sherri, the Hospital has "outsourced" its car park management to this outfit "Parking Eye" and from other comments in the local press they are unlikely to waive any appeal. Our friend does not have a "Blue Badge" Disability sticker but in any case I don't think that they are valid in this situation....

Caught by the camera again

This is not my lucky year for traffic "offences". As you may recall I was clobbered by the Victoria police for a speeding offence, and had a "severe talking to" by the NSW Police (going too slow!) earlier in the year. This morning another nice letter, this time for parking too long in the local hosp...
