A Door From The North

13 Holly Avenue, Newcastle

13 Holly Avenue, Newcastle

This is 13 Holly Avenue, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. It is the house that three of the Dinnis children were born in and spent their early years.

When they moved here Joseph Taylor and Annie Dinnis already had one child, Jack Douglas, so they must have moved in around 1921.

The following year Nancy Dora was born, followed in 1923 by Gordon Charles (my father) and finally in 1925 Ronald Stanley.

Nancy paid a visit to her family home in her later years, and took these photographs of it.

I also have a photograph of this house in the Black & White Years, I think this must have been taken in 1924, Dad (Gordon) is in the pram. Jack and Nancy are standing beside him.

And a few years later, here are the four Dinnis children lined up outside the house. The quality of this photo isn’t so great.

About Jackie Dinnis

Welcome to my blog where I am enjoying meeting my family - past and present - one at a time. Join me as I learn who my ancestors were, where they lived, what their occupations were and what everyday life was like for them.
