Carlin How Working Men’s Club

Carlin How Working Men's Club

Carlin How Workingman’s Club and shop (long gone) on Brotton Road. This photo is I believe 1911 to 1912. Note railings and oping stones still not complete indicating job not quite finished. Hence the guess at the date as the club opened in 1911. Also note center left Blaylock’s house and shop and outbuildings on bottom end of Maynard Street. This was taken down in the 1960s to make the bend easier for the larger buses.

Roger Barwick advises us: ”My Grandad Harold Bowling was probably the first steward at Carlin How club. He moved from the old soldiers club in Hemsworth in West Yorkshire when my Mam was 1-2 years old and she was born in 1910, he eventually became the landlord of The Maynard Arms but I am not sure when he took the pub over. Quite a number of people may remember my Uncle Harold or Tim as he was known who joined the Police and was awarded the BEM for work he did when he was stationed at Staithes.”
Thanks to Roger Barwick for the update.

Brian Stonehouse tells us:”My sister (Sheila) was born on 09/04/32 in the Clubhouse next door (originally no.4 Brotton Road, but now no.1!) I was born 22/10/34 so my dad George Wilfred and my mum Gladys Constance Stonehouse must have become Steward/Stewardess before 1932. My dad died 17/09/35 and my mum continued as Stewardess until Nov. 1953 having been given splendid support by committee members (especially Jos Husband, George Brown, John Cush, George Elders and others (I cannot remember their names). Toy Mott helped behind the bar and Bob Butterworth helped doing the unpleasant jobs around the club like the boiler, the toilets, etc. (I used to help him clean the spitoons with the wrapper from a Woodbine 5 pack as he had a disabled hand!).

Thanks to Brian for this further update.
