Brotton Green Tree

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.”

    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.

    Can anyone tell me which modern day building is the site of where Ruddock’s Butchers shop was? I am related to the Ruddocks who owned the shop, and have some photos from the 1930s of people standing on the doorstep of the shop.
