What Year

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what year this photo was taken.

Have a look at other old photos in the places section of the gallery under Old photos of Bedlington

That looks to me like a mid 70`s photo..not sure though. Maybe Threegee will have a better idea.

It pre-dates 1975 and it's certainly not the early or mid 1960's. So... 1971 sounds like a fair guess.

1983 sorry got dates mixed up 10 year out

Are you sure? I'm told that Clevva Clothes had moved by 1975, and that it was a fruit & veg shop by then. Difficult to tell from the cars, too few and too far away.

But... Greggs looks suspiciously modern, and I think it was originally beside Barclays. Pity there wasn't a bit more to the left or right.

it was definitly the 80's cause the market tavern was still called the neuk or sumit then it burn't down! then it was reincarnated as the market tavern and is still a !*[email protected]# hole!

When was it called the Howard Arms? I`m nearly sure that`s what it`s called on that photo :unsure:

Up until the present day "brand imaging" it had always been the Howard Arms, at least within living memory.

I'm wrong about Greggs being beside Barclays (extreme right edge of photo), it was Carricks. For a while we had two bakery chains there.

And, I'm still being told that Clevva Clothes wasn't still there by the late 1970's - very puzzling!

What you can say with reasonable certainty is that it's a high-summer shot taken late morning. Maybe June or July. That there are virtually no cars around at that time of day - except a bit of passing traffic - , few people, and the shops look shut, says it must be a late Sunday morning. Get the year right and you can almost pinpoint the date and time!

might 'ave been wednesday morning when everyone done off to Morpeth for market day,still like that today,not the market,but a ghost town on wednesdays is Bedlington.Come to think of it it's like that the rest of the week as well.

Carricks, Greggs and Bakers oven all the same company. Greggs!

Cars suggest mid seventies

Looking at the red telephone box when did they disappear from the street?

Don't you remember the GMTV where they had an alien in Greggs one morning? Maybe he just had a sausage roll and a stottie?
