  1. I'm fine! just been too busy coping with the heatwave and all the mature fruit it suddenly produced in the garden. Anyone want jam? I've got 37 lbs of it! I've kept up to date reading the site (on my phone - not the best instrument for writing replies) but most non-essential, heat-producing electrical goods (computers among them) have been 'in lockdown'. Thanks for your concern.

  2. Not sure why this comment needed to be approved by a mod, maybe @Andy Millne could have a look?

  3. @lilbill15You've got the wrong Maud there. Maud was a popular name in the Bower family - Maud, Elizabeth Maud, Lily Maud and Maud Ellen. It was Elizabeth Maud who married into the Carr family. With the exception of a few friends, she went by her first name - Elizabeth and would be too old for this photo. I'm still not convinced that nr 5 is Maud. Lily Maud would be about the right age but I never met her so I've no idea what she looked like. However, I don't think she ever lived at Netherton.

  4. You've got some good ideas there. I've often thought that the information about the various forums and the areas they cover would be a good starting point for anybody who 'just happens to drop in'. Like Symptoms said, this is in no way a moan. I also think a forum for queries and tips about how to use the site would be a good thing. It would save us clogging up the other forums. Perhaps a FAQ forum could be useful.

  6. I have entered the coordinates of the Francis Pit from an old map and the red map indicator should be its exact position. If you enter the coordinates shown on the photo on a GPS if should take you there.

  9. @Canny lass - asked Margaret new the ages of the people in the photo but unfortunately not. She got the photo off a friend = Gwen Ogle. Waiting to see if Gwen has any further info.

  10. Sorry, I've no idea about No 34. Not sure about No 5 either - looks more like her sister. About how old are these children?

  11. Photo from Margaret McMillan Bedlington remembered Facebook group. Margaret named them all apart from No 34 that she believes was a Netherton Colliery lad. Far too early for a @Canny lass but would you know anyone from t that might be able to identify him? Was No 5 also from Netherton?

  12. Hey,Mr Fox, thanks for this. New things seem to be happening which is unsettling for the likes of me, who hasn’t yet mastered the intricacies of the site anyway. I had a red letter message saying I was replying too quickly and must wait for (can’t remember.. seconds or minutes) before I could submit my reply??? Seriously @Andy Millne??
