Re: Streets of Hebburn ~ Quarry Road …
We moved from Station Road to 24 Quarry Road round about 1952, when I started at Jarrow Grammar School. It was a downstairs council flat with an indoor toilet and bathroom - a novelty for us. We had half a back garden instead of a back yard with netty.
Just opposite us on the corner of Canning Street was a big house where Mr Gaymer of Gaymer's Cider lived. He was works manager at Pyrotenax, where my Dad worked and I started work in the labs there in 1957.
