South Shields 1996

Post by Barney » Sun Apr 19, 2015 4:01 pm

Interestingly, saw this vid on Youtube, and thought I'd share it.

It's probably been on here before, but I hadn't seen it.

Some of the jumps are difficult to fathom - Mile End road to Dean Road - but still interesting to see.

Be interesting to see these streets now.

Question - when did we have single-decker blue buses in Shields? I remember Yellow - Corporation buses - and red - Northern buses.
But blue had gone long before 1996.

He learnt his songs
From the Cosmic Throngs
And played them on a Fender guitar - Oh yeah.

And another one from the 1950's about King Street and the Market.
This was before the concrete monstrosities were built. Should be some good memory jerkers here! :D

Incidentally, the commentary is annotated at the bottom, but the wording being shown is hilarious!! :D :D :D
