Re: 1910 Bede Buildings rates list
Thank you Norman for the list of names some of which I did hear my father mention when I was a kid,I often went to play with with Margaret Houston who went to the Quay School and lived in Bede BuildingsI didn't at the time connect it with my father's works.I was telling my daughter,about Bede House and her take on this is that it could have been the manager's residence,as Bede Buildings were for the worker's.
My father left the high school in Jarrow in1922 and started his apprenticeship with the Bede,as a fitter and turner,he worked there until it closed.
