Todays header was taken in Frobisher St in 1954. I wonder if the un-named brother is Philip Hobson. I ask because a Philip Hobson came to buy a 'Good old Hebburn' book a few days ago. Since then I'velooked through my photos and found this one. He might see this post because I mention the meassage board in the books. I think his grandparents were from Till St.
Regarding todays [wed] header photo Geoff and his Brother Geoff had 3 brothers..Arthur..Stephen..Philip.
Philip was born 1951/52 so it cannot be him. it could possibly be Stephen Hobson Stephen is on other Hebburn and our Neighbours website photos....ie Hebburn Powerhouse pics as he was a bodybuilder and won the Mr North East Title many years ago This photo may have been taken outside Geoffs parents home as they lived at 50 Frobisher St.
Re Geoff & Philips mother Her maiden name was McCracken His father to my knowledge originated from up Consett way.....The McCracken side of her family lived in John street Hebburn Ive never heard of the Till Street connection but I could be wrong.
