The girl next door

Maxie Forster is a binman who carries out ashes from the coal fires of North Shields the holes in his leather soled boots are letting in water from the rain and he cannot afford to go and take the boots to the cobbler shop in Billy Mill. He tries repairing them with some old lino and cuts the shape out with a stanley knife and glues them with some evo stick then places cardboard in the insides. Looking over the road on his round he spots a family being evicted by the bailiffs - the wagon is loaded with furniture and the woman and her five children stand in the rain as the barrow with everything she owns is pushed down the street.

looking to take anyone home. Many a night Stan and Albert would end up sharing the bed with the same woman.


“Hey Molly what you doin’ later said Albert with a wink; fancy going to the Cresta club with me and Stan?’

“Maybe you could get Iris Miller to come wi you.’

“Are you ganna wait for me until we close up then “Cos’ I’m not walkin’ in the Cresta Club with Iris on our own.’

“We’ll wait if you are up to goin’ like.’

“Well you will have to get us a drink mind as we aren’t payin’

“Don’t worry aboot drink we will sly you a half bottle of Gordon’s Gin in; all you need to do is get some tonic water and just keep topping it up.’

“Go on then you’re on.’

“Albert the Hat” came and sat down with the pints that he’d bought.’

“Right Stan we are sorted for shag tonight.’

“How’s that?’

“Molly Thompson is bringing her mate Iris Miller to the Cresta Club after the pub closes.’

“Here pop over the road and get a half bottle of Gordon’s Gin.’

It will save us a few bob inside the club.

“Stan took the ten bob note and left the bar and crossed the road to the off licence and went in. Geordie Combs was behind the counter.’

Half bottle of Gordon’s Geordie.’

Bloody hell lad you on the pull again; your bloody cock will drop off one of these nights.’

“Where you gannin’ like said Geordie as he wrapped up the bottle in some brown paper and stuck it inside a carrier bag. “ Six and four pence he said as he took the ten bob from Stan who. Gave him a wink and said we are Gannin’ to the Cresta Club.’

I tell you if your missus finds oot she will cut off your bollocks.

“Gabbie won’t find oot I will tell her I had to gan back to get the boat ready.’

“I might come over later when I’m finished from here said Geordie.’

“The fat, balding thirty six year old didn’t get many women; he was always sweating and carried a handkerchief in his pocket to wipe his brow.

He kept a copy of the latest Penthouse magazine under the counter and

 would sit with a copy of the daily mirror newspaper with the penthouse magazine stuck in the centre pages so he could feast his eyes upon the naked women in its contents. I have something that you might like said Stan as he pulled from his pocket a copy of a Colour Climax Magazine from Denmark. It contained some Hard Core pornographic images of women having sex. “When Geordie got his eye on it he asked how much he wanted for it. To you Geordie I will take a fiver off you.’

“Five quid,’ that’s a bit steep isn’t it.’

“If you don’t want it then I can flog it in the club tonight for more than that.’

“Alright, a fiver it is. Geordie went into the till and took out a blue five pound note and Stan looked around before slipping him the magazine which was totally illegal to have in the country.’

“Might see you later then said Geordie, and if you get any more of those bring them to me first.’

Stan left the shop with the fiver in his pocket; he knew he could pick them up for a pound each from the Polish fishermen so he could make a tidy profit.
