Mother's Memory - a Memory of Chester-Le-Street.

My mother remembered being looked after by Olive and Jack Carr of Chester-le Street during her teenage years. Kitty, my mother, attended 'Chester-le-Street Secondary School' where she won a prize in 1932-33: the Theodore Francis Memorial Prize. I think at one time she was in class 5.7(g). Mother's name was Kitty Taylor, later to become Kitty Burridge. She moved south, to London, I believe, when she was still only 17 or 18 years old. She was the youngest sister of Minnie, Tom, Betty and Edna Taylor.
