Re: A bit detective work on that latest Header
yes norman you are correct,when i went to heworth school in the mid fifties the end of the house facing pelaw was known as the salt house,because the inside of the house was partitioned off from the rest of it from where the drainpipe and facing pelaw,at that time the house would have belonged to felling urban district council,and there was tons of rock salt inside it,i remember going to school in the winter, a man would push a barrow, with two motorbike wheels on it, and two old metal dustbins out of the building with the bins full of salt,and scatter salt all over the metal bridge clearly shown on your photo,and also scattered it up the bank into pelaw where the houses are sloping,i think the bridge was all metal with only a footpath on one side of it you can see someone walking over it,well, that mystery is solved, thank,s to norman, alan.
