A bit of folklore - Walter Willson's wettry tea

*

Walter Willson's wettry tea
Is good for dergs; but not for me

*

  • Walter Wilson's = a chain of food shops, based in Newcastle upon Tyne, which used to be found in prominent high street locations in many of the mining village of Northumberland. Now disappeared without trace.
  • wettry = watery
  • dergs = dogs

Recorded in the middle 1960s, from my Father - reported from his childhood of the 1930s (?) - Newbiggin by the Sea, Northumberland
