Re: Streets of Hebburn ~ Collingwood Street…

I remember the shop well as a customer.
The thing that sticks in my mind was the arrangement of angled metal glass fronted boxes in which the biscuits were displayed. They were on the customer side of the counter.
The biscuits were sold by weight and she did a roaring business in broken biscuits.
This also reminds me of the Frobisher St. F & C shop which we used for years. I am assuming that it is still there.
