Brotton Green Tree

The Green Tree at Brotton, believed to be from the 1950’s. Pamela Mcvay tells us: ”We used to live on Lorne Terrace (out of shot here,) I remember the shops behind the Green Tree and at the end of Lorne Terrace was a dairy selling milk and orange juice in bottles. Not sure if this might be very early 1950s”. Gary Wilson also tells us: ”I can also remember the shops behind the Green Tree; the Coop and Ruddock’s butchers on the corner and Ada Bell in the dairy.” Whilst Patsy Gallon has memories: “I remember going to Ada’s when we visited my gran, Elsie Rogerson. She lived on the High Street. My mum had the hairdressers in approximately late 1940’s – 1950’s. I believe it is still a hairdressers today.” Alison Yarushin enquires: “Can anyone tell me which modern day building is the site of where Ruddock’s Butchers shop was? I am related to the Ruddock’s who owned the shop, and have some photograph from the 1930s of people standing on the doorstep of the shop.”

    I lived on Lorne Terrace for 40 years from 1968. Dairy at the end of the terrace which Ada Bell ran, milkman was Garretts I think, Ruddock on the corner of Ings Lane behind Green Tree then the Ship and Co-op. Coverdale buildings round the back where my dad was born in 1924.

    Patsy Gallon’s grandma was my Aunt Elsie who lived with my Uncle Jim Rogerson opposite the Green Tree.
    Next door to her lived my Uncle Wilf and Auntie Evelyn Hindmarch. Another Aunt Madge and Uncle Will Saunders lived at 77 High Street, there were 13 parents and children in the family.
