My mam lived for over 40 years opposite valley view park. We spent many a day in there, lived in that place. Seen the state of it now? The council should try taking pride in its town, disgraceful!

The bestshop in Jarrow for me was Dalglies or Daglish's. The big toyshop on western road. I loved their Christmas displays, especially the Hornby railway sets and their great collection of Airfix models

Later on in Life John Maclean took over from the coop or was it Burtons.
I worked their for about 8 months before joining the Junior Soldiers.

In fact I worked in the Empire cinema for two weeks as a trinee projectionist. Saw the Magnificent 7 about 14 times.
Me dad used work at Daglease before the war.He loved working there.His jobs included delivering and charging glass batteries for radios,Mending bikes,serving in the shop and repairing wind up Gramaphones one of which I have with daglease name plate on it
