Birdcage Club

Hi Pete, we still have, in our family, a much loved painting of Dunstanburgh Castle which we bought from you for 7 pounds one night in the Birdcage ! You won't remember me but I married David from the Nags Head! Found this site when looking for paintings by you. Missed one at auction recently. The Dunstanburgh one has always been treasured. Happy days !!! Sue

Great North Road

Hi, I used to travel via the great north road in the 1960s to near Durham, I can remember going through the arch above lots of times it was very narrow and you had to watch your car you could not speed then. Alnwick is a nice place and relatives of mine come from nearby lesbury, it definately made the difference when the by-pass was built it must have been a relief for the place.

Alnwick, Cars Circa 1955

The above picture was from 1948, I can tell this by the types of cars here, especially the light coloured one half hidden in the background, which actually is the most modern for this year.
