This may be of interest, a history of Milburn House in Newcastle
http://www.milburnhouse.com/documents/HISTORY_OF_MILBURN_HOUSE.pdf

which appears to have been built for the Milburn family and there is info on the family within the document.

Oddly, there is no mention of the fact that my sister started her working life  in that building as a secretary in the 1960s :-)

Very interesting thanks for that.

I really enjoy how bits and pieces of information about people and buildings changes ones perspective and appreciation for what is around.

Love it!

The photo of Fred Milburn has been returned to a surviving family member who is thrilled to see him and add him to their family photo album.
