Hi.

Been to see a very interesting person today.

Had a chat on Bedlington and the Furnace.

She has given me a photo of The Last of the Nailers.

She says it is Bedlington and on the back it is dated 1858.

This has got me puzzled as of the date but it is in her families photographs and she aint sure who it is of.

She is getting on in late life now and have to take that into my thinking.

Could this be the Gibson family of Bedlington and a previous family member have written this on the back of the photo ?

I don't know, what do you think. ?

Post something else later as soon as it is scanned. From the elderly lady too.

This is from Bedlington Furnace too.

Same contact and she has many pics too.

Can't say who she is as a couple of years back a certain person went to an elderly lady at Nedderton after finding out something from me and said he was from

our history group. He was out of order and i won't say anything about this one in case he sees it on here.

Mind you, i never have seen himon here, but you never know.

These photos are all interesting and i think they need discussing.

The pic of the first nailers could be the oldest of Bedlington i know of ?

And, there are more.

Lets know what the members think ?

Looked at the photo with magnifying glass and its 1888. Its in pencil , faded but you can see it is 1888.

Was it taken at the Furnace or the side of Vulcan Place ?

Thats what me and Colin think.

We been looking closely at the pic again today.

However, with what was written on back of photo could they have been the last nailers at the Furnace ?

But still agree with Vilcan Place and the oldest man on the left his face is very familiar, I do think i seen him before on another photo.

      The daughter of a learner motorcyclist who died in a smash during his first lesson is raising money in his memory for the medics who came to his aid.
      Darren Jobling, 50, was thrown from his bike and crashed into a tree on Front Street West in Bedlington, Northumberland in July, 2019.
      The Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) and North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) attended the scene and found that Mr Jobling had sustained severe chest injuries.
      He was taken to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle by a NEAS road crew, accompanied by the critical care team from GNAAS.
      His daughter Danielle Jobling, 25, said: “GNAAS were there to assist straight away. They placed my dad in a coma and ensured he was comfortable.”
      Sadly, Mr Jobling, from Stakeford, Northumberland died a few hours later as a result of his injuries.

      Do you think we could recreate Bedlington Front Street from years ago by using old pics ?
      I think it would be worth doing.
      Malcolm , i reckon it would be good for your project. What do you think.
      an example
      here's two pics , we could add on to these and re-create the street if we could get enough pics from that time
