One of my favourite old photos in Hebburn
Posted by Norman Dunn on January 9, 2021, 12:27 pm
This photo was sent to me 15 or more years ago by Dorothy Chapman who lived in Whitburn area. She was brought up in Hebburn and her maiden name was Winch.I often wondered what happened to her as she loaned me a canny few photos then disappeared. She was in a Local Pub/Restaurant one day and this photo was on the wall in a frame, so she took a photo of it and sent it to me.
I cleaned it up and here it is. I remember that view very well, but 30 odd years later
See how sooty our area was due to Industry and everyone burning coal.
