Huttonian came across this ancient image of the strand at Newcastle, Norn Iron as published in last weeks Mourne Observer-County Down's answer* to the Berwickshire
Could it have been a young Huttonian on the Donkey? No. He despised such girly pursuits but he did, once,perform in the 'Bandstand' which can be seen on the old Promenade. This was 'amateur night' and I must have been 12. What did I do? Sing? Dance' Tell risque stories? You know I have no recollection except I remember the audience vividly. An old lady (must have been at least 45 in a fur hat) A soldier in uniform, A woman with a pram and two giggling friends. (mine) Thats them
Oh Yes, an off duty Donkey.
Did it bray in appreciation of my wit? Tune? Dance? No, but I do remember how it showed its reaction.
My friends found this amusing and comments about playing the ass got a bit tedious.
