Tuesday's Header in Blindburn St lane with Len
Posted by Norman Dunn on July 26, 2022, 8:39:20
Today's Header was taken 88 yrs ago showing Len Stephenson as a little lad. When WW2 came along Len was evacuated to Canada. After the war he worked in Frazers which was between the Railway Lines & the 'County Hotel. Eventually Len yearned for Canada so emigrated there. He was a Board regular on Mike Ellison's old Hebburn.org website for years. One day he emailed me to ask 'Remind me of the name of that street behind the Tennis Courts on the Jarrow Park photo I posted, because I had a girlfriend that lived in that street'
I told him Wansbeck Rd and I once lived there for 7 or 8 years so I him asked what number did the girl live. He replied she was called Margaret Craig & lived at 78.
What a coincidence as number 78 was where we lived many years later and long after Len's girlfriend. After that I often got phonecalls from Len as he enjoyed discussing the old days and hearing a 'Geordie' voice again.
Len passed away quite a few years ago.RIP Len
