Re: Remember Jarrow Baths?
Norman, your mention of the Picture House brings back more memories of the mass stampede that occurred on Saturday nights when the cinema closed. It was a male thing and they were all headed for the urinal at the junction of Wylam St. and a back lane just to the east of a shool. It is actually marked on the 1912 OS map (sheet 14).
For an innocent youth like myself it was awful. The airborne acidity from a mass decant brought tears to the eyes of that small boy. Hercules, with all his stable cleaning powers would have been hard pressed to clear that place of the stench.
