"WE'ERS THA' LIVE "?

CROSS ST.

 

The Birthday Party at the Big Yard Cross Street
Are you on here ? Cos they are still trying to find out who ate all the buns, and who stuck their fingers in the cake, and pinched most of the icing

This picture on the left was sent along by Peter Smith who writes : My Dad George Smith and his older brother John standing in the doorway of 5 Cross St.
My Dad looks to be about 5 years old which would date it at 1925.


Both became miners at Silverwood. Both were keen members of the Baggin bowling club and John was club captain for many years.


John Died in 2002 and George in 2003. Their elder brother Len who also spent his working life at Silverwood also died in 2002.

 



Looking down the Big yard in the 1970's,Cross street differed from the neighbouring streets simply by having a common yard. All the other streets having yards shared by two houses only. The house facing are on Doncaster Road.


Yes they hung the washing out across the yard despite the vehicle access.
 On the left are the coalhouses and the outside toilets.


Cross Street is the link road between Oldgate Lane and Doncaster Road,
