Felling Historian Gordon Stridiron kindly loaned me lots of Bill Quay photos & as the towns are so close why not include them? Gordon told me that a lot of these 1938 cyclists at Wolsingham were from Hebburn The Chancellor of the Exchequer (1947-50) Sir Stafford Cripps & wife at the Co-op Quilt making dept in Pelaw.
Quite a few Hebburn people worked at the CWS complex in Pelaw. I have no date for this photo of some of the girls that workedin the Shirt factory.More CWS girls from Gordon's collection. The style looks 1920s-30s.Pelaw CWS workers & again they look 1920s or 30s. Isn't it a shame people don't write a date on photos?
Felling's John Pit 1925 which was adjacent to the Railway Station. Remains of it can still be seen today.An explosion in 1812 killed 92 men & boysThis is Heworth Village in 1894 with St Mary's church in view. Today Heworth roundabout covers a lot of that area.Remember this view from the bus as you headed back to Hebburn from Worswick St? Note the gas lamp & the rough road surface. Again no date on the photo
