  2. I popped in to Cowells today. Bobby wasn't there but did get some info from Nicky and Kevin. The photo board was removed the last time the shop was decorated. Bobby took over the shop from a Mr Wilson. This was early 70's. Hopefully I'll get more info from Bobby when I see him and also something about Cramlington COOP over the road.

  4. Eggy, I should have put the brain in gear and thought about the date the mother-in-law worked at the stn COOP. She would be very, very old now. I occasionally come across Bobby Cowell so will ask when he opened the shop and if he knows anything about the butcher or the COOP across the road. He's older than me so perhaps he knows a bit more. I will pop into Cowells and see if there is a photo board. I was in about 2 weeks ago and didn't notice anything. I wondered if there was a butchers there before it was Cowells. Pete suggests Raffie Davison had something to do with it. I kn

  6. In the photo provided by @Eggy1948 it shows the end of the COOP building and a window with a sign ?????????? Dept. in it. I think that was the butchers. To the right of that as we look at it there was a COOP general food store. Everything, well almost, was sold loose and measured out as required such as a 8ozs of sugar or 2lb of flour, etc. I remember a big red meat slicing machine sitting on a counter but not sure if the counter was in that COOP food store. The slicing machine had a very sharp spinning metal disk which cut the meat into slices and dropped it neatly onto a moving flat b
  7. I can remember a COOP butcher in Station road at the stn about where Keenleysides is. I'm 90% sure it was a Cramlington COOP butcher. My mother would take me there in a pushchair and we often left the butchers with a piece of white suet for me to chew. This was early 1950's. When I was a little older I used to go to the library at the stn. The entrance wasn't where it is now on the end of the building but faced east onto its small car park. This library was there in the 1950's and possibly before then.

  9. Canny Lass, I've just done a Win10 upgrade without any problems. Like you for this site my login details are remembered. I didn't have to login to get back into this site. Do you have any security software running that may be being extra protective since the upgrade? You need to speak with someone who knows about these things. It may be worth a google to see if anyone else has had similar problems. Search " passwords not saved since Win10 upgrade" or similar. Or, "a popup has appeared since Win10 upgrade" You may get lucky.
  10. Canny Lass, That popup seems a bit suspicious. Someone after your login details? You need to speak with someone who knows about these BEFORE you do anything.
  11. In a search for the Market Place Club I found a photo of the club with a dormer window in the roof. Without standing outside of the club or looking out of the dormer with a copy of the photo in question in my hand my best guess is the photo was taken from that dormer.

    COOP

    Thanks for the replies. I didn't imagine for one minute that it would be a coop that works the same way as ours. The coop trading principal obviously works in many countries. I wiser now!

    COOP

    I was watching some skiing on the tv over the weekend with the competitors wearing bibs with COOP printed on them. I wonder what the COOP stands for, surely not the one we know. This skiing was in Falum, Sweden so probably a question for Canny Lass.
