Robert Whillis Todd

Robert was a local lad. According to the census he was born in Newcastle. In 1911 he was working as a commercial traveller for a building merchants and living with his widowed mother. In the previous census his father was still alive and is accredited with the rather grand-sounding title of “Telegraphic Civil Servant”. Whether his wages went very far with 8 children is another matter! Robert appears in the medical journal as he suffered from a bout of bronchitis.
