  1. From threegee.

    "The group of lads with one astride the car could include Philip Joyce, William Scott, and Bob? Mather?, Bill Orange, Billy Elliot - the Bedlington engineering/garages crowd who used to hang out together. Long before my time."

  2. Yes i agree. I don’t think it’s the same building. I do think it may be the same location though. There are some similarities between this stone building and one in Evan Martin’s photo and the other building with the two chimney stacks. 
     

    i don’t know if reproducing Evan’s photo here comes under fair use or not but perhaps @Alan Edgar (Eggy1948) has a copy or can confirm the location. 
     

    In Evans photo this building could be further up towards the Red Lion than the Trinity church building in the Google image. 

  3. Thanks for the detective work. I don’t believe there are any direct connections but I did suspect it wasn’t Bedlington. There are quite a few letters with these photos so I’ll see if I can find any other links to America.

    or do those stepping stones look bigger back then?

    They do seem smaller in person now than old photos. This will be early 50s. 

    There’s a similar point of view from 1977 here…
