My guess is top of The Wynd looking South East at Gibson Street. The small window is still there and the step in the roofline can be seen in this image too. There's not many 'L' shaped streets in Amble I can think of.

No Jan it's down the Braid hill where the Salvation Army place was, buildings in the background are still there. A lot of the carters and hawkers had stablng in that area, even in my time Bob Barclay had stables where the bungalow is now. Charlton the milk people later had lock up garages there.

That's over the back of Queen Street then Alan? The cobblers was down there too I think. Was the cut grass off the Braid?

My sisters are the ones with the main memories of the Sally Army hut

Spot on as ever Alan! You can just about see it on street view and it matches perfectly.

Its Cross St, North St on way down to Braid. As you say where the Sally army hut was. I didn't think there would be hay fields then on the Braid, it was the town refuse tip down that lane to the Gut !!

There was a field, in what became Mrs Campbell Smiths garden area, which was known as "Beachams Field" and horses were grazed there until the late 50's early 60's. This is part of the land which was to become the Tesco Supermarket.
