Re: Palmer st getting demolished
I was in the top class at primary school when Hibernian Road and adjacent streets in Jarrow were being demolished. These were terraced cottages (single story). Every evening after school we would visit a particular house where we had filled the back yard with old mattresses dragged from other houses, then we would jump off the roof to land on them. Great fun, totally dangerous, and heaven knows what we might have caught from the mattresses!
