Back of Yard Row

Carole

This photo was taken at Netherton in about 1919. Unlike some colliery rows the houses in this terrace had back yards, explaining the name of the street. Miner's families built over many of the yards to create a scullery at the back of their house. I've heard that some people at Netherton gave their sculleries the nickname "the klondike", perhaps implying that it was at the back of beyond.
