I was a paper lad at Forsters for a while in the 60s. He was a good payer (25 bob a week) compared to the shop in South Frederick Street which only paid 16 bob a week. Mind, you earned it especially on a Sunday when you would be out with two bags. Nowadays you wouldn't be allowed to do it on health and safety grounds.

I try to trace the family and children. What kind of house and area was/is this? Where in South Shields was/is it situated? Does anybody know the family or the steamer? Please, inform the forum and me.
Hi Finn,

My great-grandfather was called Anderson, he lived in Lytton Street and he was originally from Sweden. He was also in the merchant navy, so there's a good chance he's who you're looking for.

Unfortunately I'm not able to send you a private message, but if you are still around, let me know so we can try and get in contact directly.
