Theres a tale where he was asked to be the compare for the North East truck and bus christmas party down in Tall Trees.  He refused payment and instead said he'd gladly 'do it for a drink'.  He went down a storm on stage, but the next day when the firm was presented with his bar bill, it was decided that they couldn't afford not to pay him if he ever came back...

Not chod, but sort of related.

The original Haymarket Metro Station was so designed to take the weight of the Central Motorway West which should have gone above it, but it was never built. A "flying motorway" would have looked so odd there.

 

Haymarket+1.jpg?imgmax=720

 

Part of St James' Park would have been needed to build it, more's the pity it was never done.

 

Nicer looking than the monstrosity that is there now.

PHWOAR! I remember these LHs well. This batch lasted until the late 90s or possibly early 00s, I can't quite remember. Used to see them lined up around that time along with VRs at Morpeth bus station ready for the horrid children to smash up on school services the next day.

Bet it smelled faintly of bleach.

yep, been in there ! in my defence, i was only 16, me and a mate did it for a dare / bet - it was just as sleazy inside as it looks from the street. we didn't stay for long, and no, we didn't buy anything !

Aye.

It might look nicer if Tyne & Wear councils didn't spend all of our tax money in horse punching land.

 

What a farce.


Safe now. Everything's lead lined.

Shop at Binns - I thought it was compulsory that every bus in the North East had this on the front?

 

Further south, in Hull, there was a Svens Books on a cross roads. One day I was waiting for the lights when an adolescent went into Svens; a few seconds later he literally flew out of the door parallel to the pavement, landed on his front, picked himself up and wandered nonchalantly down the road.

A couple more from round the dealer near the model shop on Blenheim St.   Last one shows the other dealer opposite that I mentioned earlier.

If it is, it won't be there long!

 

I don't remember a Greggs in scotswood while I lived there though, nearest one was on Adelade Terrace. Great for cheese pasties on the way to work.

Think its Armstrong Road.  According to the people I stole the pics off.  The run of shops opposite the old Shafto maybe, but I'm not sure.

Yeah, that's what I thought first but I only lived two streets up from there and there wasn't a Greggs.
