27th November 1945

Ralph Copeman
13, The Drive.

The Drive Shops
... filled the gap in the above photograph.

Ralph Copeman, known to his pals as 'Pedlar', was a Coal Miner at Usworth Colliery.
Allegedly, Pedlar enjoyed a slice of rabbit pie (and a spot of poaching)
but you'd better ask his great-nephew Tom about that!

Pedlar's granddaughter, Ann Cavanagh, née Copeman, tells us that he got his nickname from
boxer Thomas (Pedlar) Palmer - World Bantomweight Champion from 1895 - 1899.
He was also a rat-catcher working for the local council and local farmers.
