Cannon Newcastle upon Tyne

The usual complement for Management at the ABC, Westgate Road, Newcastle was 1 G.M, I Career Assistant Manager and 1 Local Assistant Manager (plus secretarial staff).

This photo marks the retirement of Local Assistant, Mary Cobb who, prior to her ABC days, had worked for Rank in various capacities which included a period as Cashier at the Odeon , Swiss Cottage, London. For many years she was based at the Odeon Byker, Newcastle with Manager, Bob Spurs until closure in 1972 when she then went to work for ABC initially at the Haymarket.

Pictured are:(Left to Right) Greta Adamson, Personal Assistant to Rank Operations Manager, Tony Ramsden, the Lord Mayor of Newcastle (whose name eludes me),Peter Talbot, G.M Odeon Newcastle, Doris Sanderson, Head Cashier, Phil Penfold, Entertainments Editor Newcastle Evening Chronicle, Bob Spurs, Manager, Odeon Byker, Terry Charnock, G.M., Mary Cobb and the Lady Mayoress (whose name I also do not recall).

Digressing to Projectionists, my best one at Westgate Road was the lad who appears on the next photograph who was also Rank trained at the Odeon,Gateshead.

It’s just too bad if you make ‘typos’ or other errors in this section as there is no editing facility. I should have credited Steve (next pic) with having taken the photo and I should have mentioned Mary Cobb after the Lady Mayoress…..
