@James You probably know this but I see your photo/slide was taken in front of the Market Place club. I have seen a couple of other slides with the 'WW' + other info written on the side of the slide. All the other slides have 1952 written on them and I think I can make out 1952 on the bottom edge of this slide. I have checked the programme from the last Northumberland Miners Picnic, 1989, and it lists all the the places the picnic was held. It might have nothing to do with the slides but Bedlington's first held the picnic in 1952. I've never seen anyone comment on the slides saying that they knew who's slides they were. Written on one slide, taken outside the Black Bull, is the name Sir Charles Trevelyn + WW + 1952.
