Stan Laurel's home site is on Dockwray Square in North Shields, Englan. The film comedian moved here with his family in 1895 when he was 5 years old. He father had gotten a job as theater manager for the Theatre Royal on Prudhoe Street. He lived here as a young boy in this home for several years before setting off for Glasgow. The house no longer stands, replaced by a newer group of homes, but a blue plaque on the front of the building indicates the location. There is also a statue of Laurel in the nearby park.
