Although the advert says (W. A. WATSON) I'm assuming it was the shops we new as R. Watson on the Glebe Road & Front Street West (next to the bus stand for the Newcastle bus (Number 3 & 10). Where the advert has MOORSIDE I can only think that it refers to Moorside, Hartford Camp - can anyone confirm that is true or am I barking up the wrong tree:whistle:

I remember Wood's pop but can't remember ever seeing their premises. On one of the genealogy sites, rootschat, one member, Pit_yacker_from_Blyth, said :-' There is mention of Woods 'pop' factory in the Blyth section, as up until the 1960's or thereabouts, Woods pop factory, presumably the same family firm was located at Bebside, over the road from the Bebside Inn. Two brothers, Lance and Harry Wood.' 

I just remember an ex member of this group, Jo Rooney (lived at the Bank Top in the 1940's before emigrating) sharing some photos of the Wood & Son's factory at the bottom of the Furnace Bank :-
