Guthrie the Bakers - Bede Burn Rd.
#1
I am in the process of uploading some photographs belonging to the late Bill and Mary Guthrie. They used to have a Bakers shop on Bede Burn Rd.

Would anyone like to give their memories of the shop?

One of the best things about this forum is how many memories are stirred its lovely..Mention old parts of Jarrow and Hebburn and some of my elders talk for ages, how things have changed...brilliant when the youngsters listen in to conversations..:clap2:cheers Cait

Is this the shop that was almost opposite Belsfield? If so, Miss Finnigan used to send one of us there every day to buy her (bread?). (Maybe Mary can confirm this?) The only reason I remember it is because they used to take farthings. That's the only shop that I ever remember spending a farthing in.

I was never sent to the shops for nellie Pat,but then again I used to keep my head down as I was terrified of her. :redface::redface::redface:
