I can remember about 15 of those councillors. Councillors Hope and Morton lived near us and I always remember Councillor Morton's wife - she wore loads of bling and a fur stole. Strange the things you recall on seeing names!

Lord Don Dixon, a really nice lad, he's never forgotten himself. No airs and graces, Cheers Don. Did you know Maisie Stewart left the Mayor's chain worth thousands of pounds in the chip shop Ha.Ha. Trust Maisie to get a laugh!!! Lucky for her the shopkeeper knew where she lived. She had been on the go all day and was dashing home with the tea, we'll forgive you Maisie Ha.Ha.

Councillor Dennis McCluskey Mayor of Jarrow 1966

I know it says 1967 in this clip .................
The Mayorship runs from May in one year to May in the next

So obviously the pic was taken near the end of his Mayorship in 1967

Also notice the length of the chain, to when as above when William George Pearson was wearing it?
Had someone chopped off a few links? (I beleive it's solid gold)

Justpassing Don't you think Mayor Mc Cluskey has the chain tied higher up on his coat, as Pearson is wearing the Mayoral robes? The ties may be in a fixed position on the robes. Tedg not Cameron, but if you cut the little points off his tash and comb his hair to the right. A dead ringer for Adolph.
