Lady Mayoress meeting a fortune-teller

Description

Violet Grantham, Lady Mayoress of Newcastle upon Tyne, meeting a fortune-teller at the Town Moor Festival, 23 June 1937 (TWAM ref. DF.GRA/5/3). Could she have predicted that Violet Grantham would go on to serve as Sheriff 1950-51 and as Lord Mayor 1952-53? These images belong to a series of albums documenting John Grantham?s service to the City of Newcastle upon Tyne as its Sheriff 1924-1925 and its Lord Mayor 1936-1937. John Grantham was born in Blyth in 1877 and became a cinema proprietor in Newcastle. He was elected to the City Council in 1912 and became an alderman in 1932. The albums give us an interesting insight into the duties of Lord Mayor and Sheriff as well as a fascinating picture of the times. 2016 is the 800th anniversary of the creation of Newcastle's Mayoralty and Burgesses.
