      Hi David, We don’t have it but I think I may have seen that image. Although I might be thinking of this: I’ll ask around for you 🙂

    Good morning, I’m trying to find Harry McQuillen of High Street Amble, I used to hear from him until 2yrs ago, he is still listed in the phone book but doesn’t reply. He has vital information about our family tree but more importantly I would like to know how he is keeping.
    Also is there ainformation about shops in Amble I’m looking for a butchers called ?Rowleys, he died many years ago I hope
    there will be photo,s of the High Street that might jog my memory.
    I would appreciate any help or advice you can give me.
