A great photo of a Victorian family having benefitted from the Industrial Revolution, love the top hat.

Retired from Terra Nova as the headmaster.

Portrait of TSWB at Terra Nova, maybe commissioned after his retirement from Terra Nova.

1965 Jenifer marries John Leech  
08 January 1976

Died en route to the garage in the back of a tow truck.

From Tim (son), TSWB had been asked to collect a prescription in Gosforth for his wife. Unfortunately the prescription was left behind so he rushed back to Lane Side Cottage to get the prescription. He parked the car in front of the gate but being in a rush the hand brake possibly was not set and the car rolled across the road into a hedge. A recovery vehicle pulled the vehicle out and was towed into the town. En route TSWB had a heart attack and passed away in the back of the recovery vehicle.
