Thank you for letting me know that your dad received the letter from me safely through his letterbox and that he's doing okayÖ brilliant!
A picture is worth a thousand words, so Iíve added an image to show where Bede House was in relation to the Mystery buildings:
I searched the Censuses, and could not find any mention of those mystery buildings. They look like private residences, though itís possible that they were not dwellings, but buildings belonging to a business, like the brickyard, and used for storage. Itís likely that your dad is the only person that might know.
Your dad is correct, the ship in the photograph is the SS Tynemouth.
Regards and thank you for your quick reply,
