Jack Wright Early Memories. - a Memory of Ayres Quay.
Personal History of Jack Wright, son of Thomas Roger Wright and Mary Gibson.
Born November 15, 1908, in a suburb of Sunderland, Durham England, a place called Ayers Quay, in the industrial part of town, being near the docks on the River Wear, where coal was loaded on ocean going vessels to all parts of the world. I remember the gas works and the bottle works and the many railway lines, the electric power station.
