  1. Yes Cl- it's down to 17c, outside, and a mere 22c in the bungalow - with window open 🙂. Getting dark by 20:00. I'll do the quiz later - too busy clarting with images What is strange is that I never received one notification email that anyone had posted/commented last night = nothing from Cl - Vic or Tonyp's comments And last night I settled down to watch NUFC v Leeds and half time went wild - a bottle of Wychwood Dice man stout - 5% + Kettle plain crisps - I nearly toppled me zimmer frame when I went to bed
  2. Although the advert says (W. A. WATSON) I'm assuming it was the shops we new as R. Watson on the Glebe Road & Front Street West (next to the bus stand for the Newcastle bus (Number 3 & 10). Where the advert has MOORSIDE I can only think that it refers to Moorside, Hartford Camp - can anyone confirm that is true or am I barking up the wrong tree
  3. Can't find any photos that have been posted on the group that show the name Hay's above the shops. This is a compilation of some of the owners that have been in Bridge House, Bedlington Station :- This is a compilation of some of the owners that have been in Leadgate House, Vulcan Place, Bedlington :-
  4. Not that this will help your cause but I can't resist mentioning the Travellers Rest in the mid to late 1960's. The Travellers Rest was the pub every dart player, and anyone else from their pub would want to go to. For an away match at any other pub it was your own transport or public transport to get there. The Percy Arms dart team hired a minibus when they were away to the Travellers and the team and any other person that could be crammed into the minibus spent the rest of the evening, including a lock-in at the Travellers. Normally after a darts match the home team landlord would come out with a couple of plates of sarnnies - plate of cheese chunks with crackers and a dish of pickles. The away team would grab a sarnnie, sup up and get back to their pub for the last hour but that didn't happen at the Travellers. The away team stayed at the Travellers till well after closing having a few more pints plus the best spread of food laid on at any of the darts matches = Yorkshire puddings - roast tatties - plate upon plate of sarnnies - cheese and crackers - pickled onions - crfisps and probably food I have forgotten. Well after 23:00 minibus back to Bedlington
