    • Remember him, he lived in a big house at Middleton-St-George. Used to go to hios house doing joinery work and also taking firewood, mainly sticks. It was my job to chop them up as I was the youngest apprentice then The machinist Arthur Foster would cut the timber into small pieces. He would say “lets bet the sparkiest wood so it spits out into the room.” Never had any complaints though.


  1. I am looking at the photograph of officials of Tees Conservancy Commissioners – 1953. I understand that my mother’s cousin’s husband Jack Sydney Bates Gentry worked from 1946 to 1966 and reached the position of General Manager. If you can please advise which row and position he can be found in this photograph.
