Just as remembered, busy, busy. Today they would all be inside Morrisons or at least in the shopping centre BUT the pram at the front. Is that a baby's pram? And I think a pair of feet are sticking out at the side.
Love it. My Jarrow! Ice cream seller in the foreground probably just leaving Rea's which is out of shot. Someone help me please with the name of the bike shop with the white poster in the window on the corner of Monkton Road My Dawes Double Blue came from there in 1954. There was also another Bike shop on the right hand side of Monkton Rd. Name? Yes it is a baby's pram Margaret. I'm guessing that the little lad was looking after his younger sibling (with the feet out) while his Mam was shopping.
Mac, Norman(Nonny) Faye left Richies and started his own business (1950ish)in Jarrow but I can't remember where, he then moved to South Frederick Street South Shields I lost touch with him when I joined the R.A.F.in 1956, could this be who you remember?
