  1. I am Emanuel Spence’s grandson and I have the Plaque in my back garden.

    My Grandmother was the first lady mayoress of Middlesbrough and I have all the papers for the creation of Linthorpe Road by my Grandfather.

    I have the only hand painted gold plaque for recognizing their services to the town.

    My Aunt Hilda was married to John Forbes – Forbes buildings and my Aunt Freda;s Husband created GKN from McNays Metals.

    Hope this helps
