Mrs (or Granny as we children called her) Spoors and her son Billy moved in 261 Newcastle Road. I always thought Reavleys pop factory was always by the hospital. First anyone had mentioned it was in Queens Road. learn something new everyday.

I remember Reavelys pop waggons being parked near the Sea Cadet place opposite the gasometer? But that was after Queens Road had been demolished. I have a photo somewhere taken in the late eighties of a reunion of people that lived in Queens Road with me mam and Gran on it!
