Sunderland Road School was on the left. The children used the road crossing beside the cobbles. There is an old photo on this website showing a policeman on duty at this point. You can just see Scott's wet fish shop on the right. They also sold rabbits and hares. One rather fierce looking lady with a black apron used skin and splay the animals, lay on their backs, and with an butchers axe, hack off the rabbit's unmentionables. then she would stare at us kids. We didn't get in her way.|
