I accidentally ran into this photo while surfing. What I THINK it is ... is the stretch of street in Sunderland with the Wheatsheaf pub and the roundhouse for trams in Sunderland. At least, if it's not, it made me think about this bit of family lore:
During the 14-18 war the women, of course, had to take over the job's held by men gone for soldiers. My great grandmother was a conductor on a tram. The roundhouse was near a pub (next to, I believe) called the Wheatsheaf. The Germans floated over in a blimp and dropped a bomb that hit the Wheatsheaf -- narrowly missing wiping out my family.
