 2 and 4 are vaguely familiar but I can't put a name to them just yet. Any idea what year this is? It's not my age group.

Unfortunately not - I have asked the question but as yet no response from Ellenor Owen.

There was an Ellenor Armstrong married a  Brian Owen in 1959. Total stab in the dark although may help with possible dates if correct.

@Canny lass - @Bedlingtonian - I asked Ellenor  for the approximate year of the photo . Ellenor says she struggles with dates and her responses to my questions have been :-

 

Ellenor Owen
Ellenor Owen Alan Edgar A little bit older than me just be guessing AnnAustin 4 sorry but I'm sure someone will recognise a few on fb
Ellenor Owen Alan Edgar Alan I started infants early 1944 & by that photo I say it was probably 2 yrs earlier not much more the few I can recall my age then would be Sheila Tatlock Ellen Lynskey Kathy Gregg

Bit before my time but they are 2 and 4 are still familiar. Have I seen them on other photos in our excellent gallery perhaps?

My sister, Maureen, must have started about the sma time and she , in her late teens, used to knock about with Sheila Tatlock.  So it's not impossible that I've seen them about in Netherton.

Unfortunately no names. Although Ellenor has mentioned a couple of possibilities no one has positively identified any of them.

@Canny lass - On Ellenor's posting on the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group I added a comment saying no one could identify anyone in her photo and she replied :-

 

  • Ellenor OwenAuthor Alan Edgar sad I was born 1939
     
  • Ken Brady
    Ken Brady Alan Brady these would be about ten fifteen years older than you, do any look familiar.

    Ellenor Owen
  • Ellenor OwenAuthor Alan Edgar class photo 1937 so this was 6 yrs before I started school they were probably at the village or high school then
    Alan Brady Some faces look familiar but any names by me would only be guesses.
     
    So I said 'Thank you' to Ellenor and left it at that but today shoe posted :-  
  • Hide or report this
  • Names in Evan Martin lno1Jean Thompson Alice z Black Evelyn Scarr Elsie Lee Margaret Simmons Norreen Wright Jean Dickinson Rita Austin the only name I reconise is Rita Austin
    So we finally got the full story and I have added the names, but they might not be in the right order, to the photo and I checked on Amazon for the book as I hadn't heard of this book - I have six of the Martin family books on our area. I found it, and have bought a copy:)

Much better photo! Don't recognise any of those names. Is that book any good? Worth having in my collection?

There are many photos that are in the other 'The Peoples History' books and many of the photos that aren't in the other books have been posted on the local groups. 

For the price, £5.72 + p&p, I thinks it's worth it:).

Goes up to page 128 - the Index at page 3 and it covers 8 areas of Bedlingtonshire.

Impressive collection!

I'll have a look for the book on't net.

Still 6 left on Amazon. It has them as second hand but mine looks as if it has never been opened apart from Evan Martin signing his name + Nov 1999 on the first page.

It's on its way!

Have you got this one in your collection:

 

Front cover.jpg

I haven't. I have seen images for Stephen B Martin's  Netherton & Barrington booklet's but never searched for them🙂 - too much reading for me, I prefer the ones with loads of images🙃

I have seen the cover of the netherton/Nedderton one before - on Flickr - Billy Embleton posted it and I added a photo of it into the Netherton/Nedderton old photos 2 album in the Gallery.
