the local polis was peter LlOYD in the mid fifties,a huge bloke nobody argued with him,then after him, the polis was tommy lawson, who should never been a polis,if he found out you had been pinching hens from the allotments, or apples from bamlings he would give you a crack of the lug and send you home,great bloke. and the doctor was doctor schmulian,both on croxdale terrace,then there was johnny barnes coffin maker, sinister looking bloke, he had his coffin workshop at the top of george street pelaw,well, i lived and played in george street,i saw him walking down the street one day,so one of the big lads said to me, go-on ask him if he has got any empty boxes,so i did, and got a right good crack from him for being cheeky, well i did,nt know.
