Photo of St Aloysius children in 1938. The young girl 'C English' went on to become a Teacher there. She now lives beside my sister in Hebburn

These are Hebburn lads in Egypt 1953 ish. They were Durham Light Infantry (DLI) and had possibly just returned from Korea.

This Swan Hunter Whigham Richardson launch shows just a tiny piece of Hebburn across the river in 1929, so well worth including.

Hawthorn Leslies with the rooftops of Hood St, St Andrews St, Ann St. Thats the old Ballast Hill. Only part of Ann St remains from this view.

Reyrolles men had a meeting & didn't want to be heard so picked the Cemetery as a meeting place during WW2 time.

Another of Reyrolles Cemetery meeting around WW2 time. They couldn't have picked a quieter place.

Sarah Duff (Billy Davies mother) with her cousin Tommy Hall in 1940's Dunston St which formed a 'T' junction with William & Cuthbert streets.

These are St Aloysius church goers possibly in 'Lismore House' or the old 'Iona' club in the 60's. Anyone see a relative? Esther & Monica Dent are on.

When Mr Reyrolle moved to Hebburn around 1906 he moved into these premises formerly a 'Dye Works'. This location would later be 'Bottom Reyrolles'

Reyrolles lads having a bit daft carry on before returning to the serious stuff producing for the WW2 effort.

Reyrolles' 'knocking off time' with the Station, the 'County', the Bridge all just out of the picture. Recognise the location now?
