Meadow Street S3 - Anyone got any memories?

Recommended Posts

Hi mijco yes it is the same person I did not want to put her surname up as even after all this time it can still cause distress as it is something that you never get over you only come to terms with how to live with it. I can recall my sister Pauline took it very bad and does not like it mentioned even now, I think they had been to Glossop Road baths but that may be wrong but it was afternoon when it happened.

The bets were put on up an entry on Netherthorpe place at the side of the cleaners and you passed them to some one in the out side toilet at the top of the yard

Welcome Morpeth

 

I remember the 'Onion Man' - and yes - he did wear a beret with the onions on strings dangling from the handlebars.

..and Jimmy Peacock - last time I saw him must have been around 1984 - he had a small stall at the end of Weston Street, just by St Stephens church.

I was born on Meadow Street 1947 (No.3 I think), don't remember too much about living on Meadow St. But later my family had a cafe on Netherthorpe Place .

Myself & my brother went to Netherthorpe school, As did my father & his brother a decades plus before.

I remember stories of fighting families & my grandfather used to asdk things to calm down whilst my grandmother visited the outside toilet.
