YOU ANSWER.A rendezvous by the town hall map
CAN anyone remember referring to the map outside Middlesbrough Town Hall as a designated meeting place when arranging to meet someone? asks Patricia Elliott of Acklam.
"When I used to do this with someone I wasn't sure of I also asked them to describe themselves.
"I was 18 in the 1960s and sometimes when I'd made the date there was a number of people who fitted the description of who you were meeting and it could be a bit embarrassing."
Stu Stamp - a prolific goal scorer
MO Foster is right, the Oak Leaf did become South Bank United, writes Don Chesney.
Later on it became South Bank Blue Stars, who were managed by Maurice Kell and Alan Pinchbeck pinch·beck

2. A cheap imitation.
1. Made of pinchbeck.
2. Imitation; spurious. . They won the Redcar Second and First Divisions in the 70s, losing only one game in two seasons.
I'm almost certain we lost a First Division game to Redcar Workingman's Club. The score was 1-0. The "Workies" had ex-Boro and Coventry star Ian Gibson playing for them.

When it clicked that Olwyn was a relative
BRIAN Whaite was reading the article about Shirley Bassey in Issue 78 and realised that the lady who sent in the article - Mrs Olwyn Hobbs - is a relative.
My grandmother and Olwyn's mother were sisters. Olwyn will know my grandmother as Auntie Sally (Sarah Harvey Harvey, city (1990 pop. 29,771), Cook co., NE Ill., a suburb S of Chicago; inc. 1895. Its manufactures include steel castings, metal products, chemicals, machinery, and electronic equipment. Harvey has an oil research center. The city was founded by Turlington W. nee Graham).
I also remember her Aunt Doris who spent a lot of time at the South Bank Mission. It is some time since I saw Olwyn and family and would love to get in touch again.
My wife and I are working on the family tree at present and would like some help with the Graham side of the family. I think that Olwyn will have guessed that I am Aunty Sally's grandson Grandson (gräNsôN`), Ger.
