Many thanks to Peter Edwards for these photos of a wall in Stockton on the corner of Inkerman Street and Bishopton Lane.

The image was uncovered late 2011 when a hoarding was removed,
Peter believed the advert relates to a 1930’s /1940 cocktail called Everybodys, but it looks like its actually a magazine that ran from the mid=40s to the mid-50s.

Sadly it will never be seen again as it was painted over late 2014.

T. Richardson, Hartlepool Iron Works 1851, Moorhouse Estate

Thomas Richardson had acquired the Hartlepool Iron Works in 1847 and this bridge lintel is dated 1851. Although it doesnt appear to be structural as the surround bridge is much newer.

A friend at Network Rail informs me there is a 1940 steel deck built from old rails that carries no tracks.

Backhouse’s Bank, Preston Hall

Backhouse’s Bank was founded in 1774 in Darlington by Quaker, James Backhouse. This ‘branch’ is at Preston Hall Museum. Jonathan Backhouse was heavily involved in the £125,000 financing of the Stockton & Darlington Railway.

In 1896 Backhouse merged with other Quaker banks, Gurney of Norwich and Barclays of London to form what is still known today as Barclays Bank.

I’m not sure which branch this plaque originated from, possibly Stockton given the date and current location ?

Charles Head, Water Trough, Stockton

This roadside water trough is now partially buried due to the roads and pavements rising over the years. Charles Head of Hartburn Hall was part of the Head Wrightson Company.

The plaque inside reads ‘Erected by Charles Arthur Head, Hartburn Hall, 1886″

Hartburn Hall was demolished in the 1930s and Jesmond Grove is now in this location.
