Born in 1900, James Hunter Carr was a keen photographer and local historian. Lived on Tyne street close to Curlew road.

Can anyone say what he did to earn a living. Let's have a few guesses before Googling. I will say it's not your usual Tyneside industry. Nowt to do with shipbuilding or mining.

Correct. I'm still puzzling as to where he carried on this particular enterprise.Smile

He had a mushroom farm in Jarrow. It's on some of the old maps. Even though I admit to googling to get the answer, :oI could have kicked myself for not thinking about it first because I've seen it on the maps a dozen or more times.

I only read about him last night in one of Paul Perry's books.
There's a James H. Carr buried in Harton cemetery. Could be one and the same. There's only one listed in the SouthTyneside BMD register.

Your turn to stretch the old grey cells. Big Grin

You're half right, jarrowman. You've got the right location but TS Collingwood is the South Shields Sea Cadets [my old unit].
