Many of us from Jarrow remember how vibrant it was in the 40's and 50's. The Arndale finally killed it.
Shoe shops, 50/- Tailor, Radio shop, Butchers , Grocers etc etc....and the women who sold old clothes in the alleyway next to Liptons (I think it was?)
I still remember in particular the old fashioned Woolies and further East the joke shop and Gregory's pet shop and near that the chewing gum machine that you could manipulate to get several packs of Wrigleys for your money!!!
