Re: Friday 'down Hebburn Quay'
This photo of the Quay as you pointed out taken in 1935 showing Tyne st where l was born in 1940 just opposite the Cally pub.On the corner of Tyne and Lyon st it shows that there were a shop and a house nos 12 and 13 Tyne st.as a youngster the shop was empty me and my twin brother used to lift the floor boards up and cut them up to make bundles of firewood which we used to sell at twopence a bundle,under the floor boards we found lots of small change and other things. like gas masks ciggarettes tinned meat.the gas meter was emptied not us l always remember the corner being a big space where we held the biggest bonfires on Tyne side. Showing on the photo of the pit yard where we as kids played cowboys no lndians at the bottom of the hill down towards Leslie's shipyard where l remember mr Tweddle having a small holding goats,chickens,etc,l Can not remember 2or3 houses in the middle of nowhere ajasent to the big shed on the shipyard side l think it was the felters shed where my grandad worked,l just wonder if John Shearer can help John worked at Leslie's. The pit yard for us kids was our playground just can not remember for the life of me those buildings. happy days
