Re: Taylor Street 1920 to 1940

Mr Galley has been mentioned by some of you and so I thought you would like to see him with the Barnes Road Junior School football team that he was involved with during my time at the school. The photograph would have been taken in about 1961/62. I cannot remember what the trophy was for but we all ...

Re: Old Cinemas

One of my interests is in researching the history and location of old cinemas,(the buildings, architects and owners rather than the films which were shown there) particularly those no longer with us.

Re: Shadwell Street

There are lots of Street names which have changed in Shields since the 1800s. I have three old ordinance maps from the 1800s covering all of South Shields. River Drive as we know it was called Pilot Street, Wapping Street used to be called Shadwell Street and so on; the list is quite extensive. The...

Re: Taylor Street 1920 to 1940

Jimmywizz - just a small correction - the school photograph is of a class at Barnes Road Junior School, with Mr Galley the teacher standing to the left. I attended the school when I lived at Taylor Street and have my class photo, also with Mr Galley (c1960).
