Re: Friday's Header from Britain from Above
Thanks Norman for posting this photograph. I have often wondered where exactly Sheldon Street was in Jarrow. The story of my Great Aunt & Great Uncle Mersaney and William McClure was a family story told to me. They were killed when a bomb was dropped on Sheldon St in April 1941 and recently I have been researching my family tree and discovered their son was killed at sea the same year. Last year I found there is a plaque dedicated to the victims of the bomb on the wall of Home Bargains shop on the site of the old bus station.
I find it fascinating to see the streets that I know my family would have know very well.
