DOES this old photograph bring back any memories for Herald readers?

The newspaper cutting was brought to us by Bedlington Station resident Nancy Lawson, who found it when sorting out a relative’s old belongings.

The picture shows residents celebrating VE Day with a street party at the Granby Buildings in Morpeth town centre.

Mrs Lawson doesn’t recognise anyone in the photograph, or know why it was kept.

The buildings were located behind Bridge Street and are still remembered by the Morpeth Antiquarian Society, which has an old stone engraved street sign for Granby Yard, which is no longer there.
