Monday 24th July - French Onion Seller

I cycled up to the plot where Steve & Mel were filling up their car boot with produce. Steve suggested I take some garlic & shallots as he & Mel had been taking lots of them to eat fresh. I did so, rather wishing I had donned a stripy t-shirt & beret for the trip back.

Take a look at this lovely archive film of Newcastle in the 1960s: We Know Our Onions - French Onion Sellers in Tyneside ©NRFTA) and listen to the Geordie influenced French accents.
