Re: Tuesday’s Header – Jarrow Salvation Army 1950s…
My parents live in South View and when I was looking into the history of their house I came across a few old newspaper articles relating to No1. Many of the ‘hits’ were adverts for the house, it boasted its own stables which must have been in the yard at the back.
The saddest story I came across was of a young niece of the household, she had said ‘goodnight’ and gone to bed, but the following morning her Aunt couldn’t raise her. She hadn’t turned off the gas lamp properly when she had gone to bed and had suffocated during the night.
The house was the offices of the Labour MP when my parents moved there, but it’s now home to several businesses I believe.
