    Funny that Brian they have a Baths in South Shields also called Derby Street baths , but named after the street. Not after a horse race. But could be wrong on that as Cappy used to take the milk mans dray horse down there after finishing his round for a rub down and a quick plunge in the deep end. They may have thought it was a race horse. Cheers JS

    john you have one good memory ...the horse was called boxer .....it was trained to gallop after the last bottle was delivered.....what a giddy up ......it was also trained to sit still outside a certain address ......from which the milkman always came out with a red face and puffing and blowing.....methinks he was dickie by name and dickie by nature.......i asked him one day if i could have a go ....he got really stroppy about it oh happy.days
