I lived in Lyon St so the Ballast Hill, and along the riverside as far as the Staiths at Pelaw Main was our playground. I've been on the Ballast Hill many times Davy, probably with your Gordon, Tommy Milburn, Lawrence Morton and Joe Parks.
Here is Mr Watson on the top part nearest Leslies.
I have a feeling he worked on the Ferry.
During the war we had ack ack guns ontop aswell as ontop of Leslies roof.
