  1. Old Bedlington Photographs & Stories

    James - This image was posted as Bedlington Station brick works on the Facebook sixtownships site. It's not the Station brick works - could this be the one behind Telephone Tow?
  2. No, you aren't imagining it!

    First computer - not mine but I did have a loan of 3 of them for 8 hrs per day in 1975 :- 1906A with 256K 24-bit words of store (650ns) including extended precision Floating Point Unit, paging, 1 high-speed channel, 5 extra slow channels. The processor :-

  4. Me, panic - stupid boy - that's the trouble with these upgrades :- They don't like it up 'em
  5. @Andy Millne went to create a new message to Symptoms and all my old messages, to any member on the site, have gone. Is it me missing something or has there been a change to the system that has resulted in old messages been cleared out ? I don't need the old messages but with my memory it often helps when I see what I have said in the past.

    Looks like she has worn out my balls and discarded them so it's definitely time for me to move on to a more mature model that will appreciate my slow play. Oh for a teletype that grunts like Sharapova.

    @Julie Dobson - with the names so far from the Bedlington Facebook group site members would you like me to add your photo into the Bedlington Station 1st School album or just post it here? The way this site currently works is that the member that created the album is the only one that can create a new page with photo. Once a page has been created then the creator of the album can set the permissions on that page so all members can comment and add photos into that page The Bedlington Station 1st School album is currently on page 2 of the 'Historic Bedlington' group. Link to the album is :- Eggy1948 (Alan Edgar of Facebook sites)
  9. Dance Hall At Bedlington Station

    @Dawn - the Bedlington Station one on Station Road above the co-op was the Reay Hall, and the last I noticed it was Yates Evolution Gym & Tanning Centre. The one you have the dance card for, the Locke Hall, was on Front Street East - no longer exists.

    My mind @Pete says that my parents told me that the guy with the horse & cart, selling ice cream in Coquetdale Place late 1950s, came from Cambois, but I can't remember his name.
  11. No, you aren't imagining it!

    My view is if it works, leave it alone but if you must replace it then scrap the old but only after Foxy has taken a photo.
  12. Puddler's Raa[Row]

    There was another ice cream seller - same type of horse & cart went around the Oval & Bedlington Station estates but I can't remember his name and the only other bit of info that's stuck in me mind is that he came, all the way, from Cambois to sell his wares. Two images of Jack Antonio in the Doctor Pit rows and it looks like they were both done on the same day, just seconds apart - one from Facebook groups and the other with some info on Jack from Evan Martin's book The Shire of Bedlington in old picture postcards :-
