Re: Peter Garbutt Mariners Player from 1950/60s

Thanks for your efforts gents.I hadn't realised (until searching for info on Peter) that he turned pro. in 1964 and played for Carlisle between then and 1970. I also noticed that a Bobby Owen made over 200 appearences for Carlisle in the 70s.would that be our Bobby Owen? I wonder how many more Marin...

Re: Wylie Brothers Ltd

Hi. Jeff
I can find the Wylies works listed in Wards 1930 & the residences of two of the Wylie Families but nothing on your father in law.Do you know when he joined the company? I note that you say "post war" so you may have the 1930s info already.

Amazing to think my Mam thought I was a villain for playing "Knocky Door Neighbour" Teachers used to cover the three "Rs" now it's Birth control and Violence! No wonder the kids are illiterate.

Re: Not a great idea?

I wonder why Mrs Ophia Flash decided that, at a time of year normally associated with a message of peace and goodwill, it would be a good idea to focus on gangs and guns? She could have chosen another time of year but I can't help feeling this was carefully planned.

Living in Ashley Road the Impy was my local flea pit. 7d front stalls 10d back stalls shilling upstairs. I think the closest to the South Eldon Street shop would be the Crown in Hudson Street. I remember my mam telling me that jam jars were accepted as currency in the days of silent films.I wonder w...

Nostalgia trip Delilah? I love it here in Yorkshire but I miss the smell of the sea and I still hear rivet guns and the sounds of the shipyards when I come home. It's my age!!

Re: Egner Butcher's shop.

Hi Ken, I've used both but because I make pease soup at the same time I find I get a better flavour using bacon bones rather than a bacon joint,but a ham shank is best for chunks of meat to eat with stottie cake. I'm drooling at the mouth just thinking about it. :D :D :D p.s. It's looking as if one ...

Re: Egner Butcher's shop.

In the Wards directory for 1930 the Egners were living at 384 South Eldon Street, only a few doors from where Delilah used to live.So does that mean 384 still exists?

Re: Egner Butcher's shop.

I believe there are a few of the old houses still standing at the Tyne Dock end of South Eldon Street Ken.,but I'll leave the locals to confirm or "put me right" on that. That tinned Pease Pud is rubbish.I make my own! I bet your Grandas was great!!!
