I think we need 3gee to help us here, It looks like that works wagon parked outside is being used to clear out Millne House and there is a co op vehicle (3 wheeler Scooter) parked outside. I think the co op took over that building after Mr Millne. C'mon 3gee help us.???? I'm guessing at 1970.

I would guess that the second pic was taken in the 50's/60's foxy with the VW camper in the picture and the other cars in the picture, would gamble and say 50's but not sure.

That looks like a Bedford Dormobile rather than a VW Adam.......... and please folks, Malcolm is just jealous of me getting a ride in those days (in a pram)

Keith, I honestly wouldn't know what a cup of coffee in Bacci's tasted like. Just read what Symptoms has to say about the place! Definitely not a place for the tender gender of Netherton. No, give me Jimmy Millne's any day. He was a great host as well. He went from table to table talking to everybody. Sometimes he'd greet you in the doorway, escort you to a seat, carry your shopping bag and get your coffee from the counter. Made you feel like royalty.

Symptoms, In answer to your query about the cafe at the station, that wasn't Bacci's. It was Moscardini's, or Moskies as it was better known. Can't remember the guy's first name. Pete would probably be able to tell you.

Joe Moscadini own the cafe at the station he also owned the billiard hall near the pictures His wife and son (Bernard) ran the cafe

Church on the left, then dentist's. Burdon House is behind the dentist's. It used to be a nursing home, built 1912, and my daughter lives there now. Why did they build it behind, or the dentist's in front? Very odd arrangement.

The big building behind the memorial stands where Grenfells now is and the big place behind or attached to it can't be there any more either. Any more info/pics on these gratefully received.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
