  4. Mother & father both born at Netherton and father worked down the pit as did just about everyone else did back then; uncle, cousins etc. I was brought up on what's known as "Pit talk", certain vocabulary I still weave into conversation to this day, but is usually met with confusion. For example - "You gave me a gliff before" = You gave me a fright earlier. Does anyone still use these terms today or have they died out? Another one; "Mind, that gully's sharp" = watch as that knife is sharp. "I walked into the bliddy cheble" = I've walked into that bloody table. Silly daft geordie t
  5. The name Cunningham strikes a chord with me. I remember my dad always talking about a Jack Cunningham and a Sally Cunningham.
  6. As me father would say "Am bliddy sick ov it". Hope you're all alright up that way. Wait it out, that's all we can do.
  7. My auntie Nellie! :) xx miss her like mad. Turnbull was her married name.
  8. He did, but now lost in time. Thanks for the name change. He was well chuffed when he saw it some years back in a photography shop window.
  9. Deffo my dad Joseph Kelly Halliday. In fact he burst into tears upon seeing a copy in a shop window down East End Front Street one time and immediately asked to buy it. Robin Hood and his Merry Men was the play.
  10. Are you sure about #4? My dad was sure that was him.
  11. I think this bus conductor Nellie was one of my aunties. She lived across from the Terrier pub. Her married name became Turnbull. Miss her like mad these days.
  12. Nice pic, Cympil. I remember Laws stores.
  13. I've not been on here for a bit. Hope everyone is OK. Nice to re-visit the past.

  17. Think of the security lads laid on there. I'm one of them.
  18. Excellent footage there, Cympil. Such proud men and their families in a more social and innocent times, celebrating their workforce. Was that Atlee Park I saw there? The road leading to Bebside, down the bank?
  19. For the 1st time this year - we never watched an episode of it. It's gone on too long and is way too boring beyond words. Everythings been done in past shows, so I think it's right to pull the plug on this series now. Bye BB, it's been fun.
  20. I had that happen to me one time when I worked down in Bristol. Another north eastener noted my accent and asked 'you from Ashington'? Well... I was born there. I nearly fell off my chair.

    Merry Christmas

    Merry christmas to all. Drove through Bedlington this very day, saw some changes and rekindled memories of yesteryear. All the best, Jojo.
  23. Just been browsing through your pics, Carole. As fascinating as ever. I remember a school group photo from Netherton school taken in the mid 1930's - featured the class dressed up as Robin Hood and his merry men. My dad was one of participents, but the pic has now been lost. It was in a shop window in bedlington if I remember correctly about 10 or so years ago - much to my late dad's delight! He had a copy made there and then. Unsure about the name of the shop, but it was a photographer's shop on Front Street East - opposite the church if I recall.
