1.1  I came up with several locations for this road sign.  There was always something to prove me wrong.  I'm baffled!

1.2  If you worked for Washington Dev. Corp. at Usworth Hall in December 1977, you'll probably remember this letter.

1.3  Two Pals playing in front of 30 Usworth Green, c.1950.  Note Usworth Brickyard Chimney in the background.

1.4  Usworth Colliery A.F.C.   Winners of the Northumberland & Durham Challenge Cup in 1940 & 1941.  Plus close-up.

1.5  A fascinating look at the food and prices on the Wimpy menu, way back before Wessington Square had a roof.
