  5. Cheers @Rigger - that's the closest yet of a reference to Carrs in Bedlington. As Newbeeders discovered there was a Carrs Buldings, Scotland Gate, in the 1911 census and as my granda and grandma were married at St Pauls, Choppington I am beging to wonder if my granda worked at Choppington pit before moving to the Dr Pit.

  11. Edgar's the barbers - no more Short Back & Sides from The Oval Barbers in the 1950's - no more quiff held up with brylcreem in the 1960's - no more long flowing hippy hair tangling in the wind in the 1970's - no more hair, use a hair clipper set to No 3, and do me own bugle
  12. Thanks for that @Newbedders - I had looked on the old maps around Scotland gate as my granny used to live at Whinney Hill and she was married at St. Pauls Church Choppintong in 1918. As you say no Carr's Buildings anywhere on the old maps - Scotland Gate has Rutter's - Fenwick's - Strong's - Foster's & Pringle's Buildings. As far as I am aware my grandfather, Martin Hhenderson, only ever worked at the Doctor Pit - but I could be wrong on that. His family were from Bentick, Newcastle so how he met a Choppinton lass I have no idea. But it's nothing important I was just curious when I noticed Carr's Bldgs next to the first two of their children - Haig Road, Bedlington for the rest. This postcard, my grannie's sister, also has Carr's Bldgs, Bedlington written on the back.
