I checked the records and Mr William Gillhespy had a Greengrocers Shop, 111 Ellison St. I think I remember it was on the other corner to the General Post Office.
Monkton Mill Farm is surely the one you went to do potato picking Lilian.In those days it was 'out in the country' as there was no Finchale Rd Estate. Behind the Cock Crow Inn is a lake and it's half in South Tyneside and half in Gateshead ie Wardley. So the Farm is just yards from Wardley.
