9 February 1915; Tuesday

Commenced to move at night. Father got Coulthard’s cart to come at night and take a load. Horse stuck on the Chester Street1 bank and we had to give it a push. The shop should do better in takings. Directors’ meeting. Mrs Ranson2 all out of the new house.

  1. Chester St, and E. & W. Chester Sts, were north of and parallel with Chester Road. Chester St. E. included a bridge over the Durham-Sunderland railway (the bank?). Chester St. W. joined the N. end of Eldon Street. 

  2. “Mrs Ranson”: Possibly the previous owner of the house at 47 Eldon Street?
