  1. The photo is taken from No 4 Old Colliery Row looking up towards the Black Bull. The gable end behind Mr Hemsted is No 6 Bell’s Place and this can also be seen in the google maps photo looking at the same view about 100 years later. The section of Bell’s Place that was demolished in the late 1940’s ran parallel and behind Old Colliery Row. To the right of the row were the toilets, and gardens. There was gas lighting and a couple of outside taps - no electricity.

  6. Definitely Bedlington east end, just a few doors along from Millne. Feasters were the first outlet for Westridge School uniforms. I'm afraid I can't confirm Bonzo's origins.

  9. @Alan Edgar (Eggy1948) I'm working on gathering info to go with these photos but everyone please feel free to comment if you have any insight. I also have a private album here with other family photos from Lairds House and elsewhere around Bedlington going back to 1893 that I'll move over to public albums once I've sorted through them for any with public interest.

  11. If you have broadband you don't need a sim. Go to settings then Wifi and fill in the required details to log into your router. If you don't have broadband then you will need a sim with plenty data per month. You could use a pay as you go sim with some data on it to see how much data you use each month then setup a monthly contract with the required data amount you think you will use. A monthly contract will prove cheaper than pay as you go. I had a Vodaphone sim in my iPad which caused me all sorts of problems. I changed to O2 and it worked perfectly. Plusnet do some canny deals o

  18. This was after I left Westridge School,Mr Abrahart left the school around 1958[?]..ish,and went to West Moor at Gosforth. A few years ago,not that many!,My Barber was cutting my hair,and as usual,the chat always went around to our days at Westridge,and he told me that Mr Abrahart left the school after a lot of harrassment from the Headmaster,Mr Hemming,who all the pupils I knew,including myself,thought the world of!! When Mr Hemming left,Mr Abrahart came back,so I am wondering if this Photo was taken during his return..which would have been after 1959 at the very least,cos that is when I

  19. Happy for the info to go onto websites but I've held back on putting any new pictures on here as I was alerted that some personal pictures had been claimed by others who then posted them elsewhere and possibly made a profit from them. It's a shame because it stops people adding to their own collections. Dad has hundreds of Bedlington pictures but has never tried to profit from them. We're happy to help people and have sent photos by personal message or email rather than posting them. This is a great website but possibly gets misused sometimes. Love the history hollow and Dad enjoys trying to
