A selection of photographs and documents kindly shared with this project by Mr. Neil Wainwright.

Both attended the nearby (Old) Jesmond Road School. "The Prefabs were temporary war accomodation, demolished in the 1970-80's or there abouts? They were made of a sort of cardboard, warm and you could bounce of the walls and still get up to continue the chase!"More detail »
