@Andy Millne - Facebook members have been searching for years for a shot of  SMAIL's shop at the entrance to Hollymount Square on Front Street east and there is one in this June 1979 pdf document :jump: :-

@Alan Edgar (Eggy1948) That's great to hear, glad I can help. They could have had one a lot sooner though if I had known. Tell them to get on over to support the local site that actually values and protects the content and isn't out to profit from invading their privacy 😛

Incidentally I've just scanned a lot of old family photos, many of which feature people and places of Bedlington. Threegee is going through them and adding any info he can and I'll be posting the relevant ones to a public album soon.

I tell those Facebook members all the time Andy, and post links to various pages, especially the gallery, on this site on a regular basis :D
