Re: Anybody remember

I think you have enough information already to find out what you want on the sixth floor of the new City Library in Newcastle which is the equivalent of what used to be called Somerset House in London. You can find any information regarding births, deaths and marriages in the South Shields/Jarrow/H...

Re: Anybody remember

Yes, Robison's sounds right. I don't remember a Hossners though. I remember the butcher on the next block, the one that became Frederick Street, was Joe's.

Re: Who filled you with fear at school

Fat Will - aka Billy Egner, Headmaster of the Boys Grammar-Tech, was the only teacher there I was really wary off. Most of the others, like Jimmy "Ginboy" Emerson, Harry "The Rat" Wake, Ken Slater, and Ken "Zoony" Smith, were more of a laugh than fearsome. Some of the older teachers, like Mr Souter...

Re: night club

I can't believe people used to go there in the 80s and 90s. My clubbing days in SS were in the 70s and none of us would have gone there as it was for the oldies. We did wonder sometimes tho about going there and other places that had 'grab a granny' nights on the logic that older women were almost c...

Re: Anybody remember

PS Sorry I just looked and realised you are in Nottingham not the North East so going to Newcastle library is not an easy option! Perhaps Baldy can do it for you, otherwise if there's no equivalent in Nottingham the Records Office is now somewhere in Islington in London, I forget exactly where, it's...

Re: Shields isn't very 'canny' now...

I too was born in the early Fifties and had a good time in downtown South Shields at weekends, even on a Sat afternoon. Of course, it was always coloured by the wanderlust and need to escape from a small town that many people have. But it's not looking thru rose-coloured specs to say the 60s and 70s...
