Children playing house with discarded junk near Byker Bridge, 1971

These are the children that lived in Byker buildings, next to the Cumberland Arms pub. Two of them behind the girls on the pram I think one was called Christine Gates and the other was Pamela who became Donaldson when she married a mate of mine Johnny Johhny if I remember lived in the house next to Freddie shepherds scrap yard as his Father was caretaker. I worked with Johnny when I first left school at Hoyles on Wilfred st at the bottom of Shields rd opposite the old Grand Theatre. The buiding behind the children was where my Brother in law and My freinds Father used to have a spray painting buisiness in the late sixties early seventies
