Staithes Quay can be seen in between the two middle metal legs of the Bridge. 

My Great, Great Grandfather (Ernest Pulling Turner)  lived with his wife and family at Staithes Quay the early 1900's. Thes were slum houses. They later moved up the bank to Howard Terrace.

@Peter Turner - I know you will have done loads of research and often have to wade through lots of info you already know. Although later than the period you have been looking at did you notice the comment by Reedy in the Puddler's Raa[Row] topic where his dad said about Howard Terrace becoming Glassey terrace?  

Reedy

Starting at what used to be Joe Jennings farm and shop including Mansion House now possibly 'Smiles' was Glassey Terrace. The first 7 houses were originally named Howard Terrace but the name was changed to Glassey Terrace as a result of misdirected mail as another Howard Terrace existed in Netherton.

Families living in Glassey Tce in the 1940s/1950s were - 1 - Storey, 2 - Jobson, 3 - Storey, 4 - Watson, 5 - Tait, 6 -----, 7 - Hedley, 

8 - Moscrop, 9 - Proudlock, 10 - Hedley, 11 - Andrews, 12 - Brown, 13 - Gregg, 14 - Morton, 15 - Gibson, 16 - Wonford

This photo shows the Uslar family. They lived 1, Staith Quay , Bank Top, Bedlington.

This was located down on the banks of the river Blyth, next to the railway bridge.

As you can see it's the wooden bridge. The metal bridge replaced it by 1931. 

The Usler's married in 1911 , so at a guess this photo could date between 1920- 25

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
