Re: The Vauxhall Viva in the header
That photo reminds me how, when I went to the Grammar School in the early 1950s, my Dad had to come home from Pyro via Bede Burn Road and Wood Terrace to get to Monkton as Campbell Park Road didn't come far enough and I don't think Finchale Road had been built.
I used to wait for him coming up the village and jump on the running board of his old Austin 12 as he drove past!
