Thanks Benjidog and Tonga for your help. I too had tried Google, etc.,with little luck.
The school was in a terraced house in the Summerhill area of Newcastle.
From memory it had first operated in South Shields being run by the founder, an ex Master named Nellist, starting in the twenties or thirties. Later it was run by his two sons, Jack and Bill who had learned their craft as assistants to their father.
As I mentioned previously Bill died in 1961 and the school closed shortly afterwards.
Thanks for your help
