Firing the Stiddy

Firing the Stiddy

Firing the Stiddy at Lythe in 1948. Blacksmith Will Dobson is setting light to gunpowder on the anvil to celebrate a local event. Usually connected with the Normanby family, quite often a birthday. John Jackson and his son Leonard are also in the photograph.

    Have just been looking through your pictures and came across the one of Firing the Stiddy at Lythe, just to say it was lovely to see this one as my dad (Lennard) and my grandad (John) Jackson are both in it. Thank you very much.
