GOSFORTH TAILORS.


The death of Mr. Mathew SMITH, tailor, calls to mind  the changes that have
taken place in a once flourishing parish. At one time  there were at least
six
tailors working in the parish, some of whom were  employed journeymen. At
that
time most farmers had their suits made up from  their own wool. Within
recent
years they have died, Jacob BRAITHWAITE, Wm.  GUINESS, John JOHNSTON, M.
SMITH. Wm. HELLON has removed, and now only  one  tailor remains to
represent what
was once a flourishing village  industry.
