The Co-op Wagon

Luke Long (Jean's father) drove the Co-op lorry, probably the first in Delaval - it had solid rubber tyres!!.I understand that in those days the Co-op ordered a lorry and it was specially built for them, they they taught the driver how to drive it. (no driving licence in those days) Sent in by BOB and JEAN STEPHENSON

Uncles and Grandmother

I thought you may interested in this photograph of My Uncles and Grandmother Stewart (nee Hollyman) who lived in Seaton Delaval from the turn of the century until 1960's. They stood outside their home in Foremans Row, and lived at a couple off address's at Foremans Row over the years and Double Row as well. I would be interested if anyone had similar photos to remember them. Sent in by JAMES A. STEWART
