Re: Header Photo 'Then & Now'
I'm agree with you Barrie there was a lot of very old houses in Hebburn and some of them would certainly be classed as slums.Outside toilets (netties)some shared with neighbours also yards with one cold water tap for all that shared the yard.I do remember some of the houses had a wash house which also was shared.Also some old houses had no electric just Gas I lived in one in Gateshead that was 58/59then got a new house on Leam Lane pure luxury at the time.
