Ice Skating at Christmas

Description

This set, taken from the Spence Family collection at Tyne & Wear Archives offers an intimate view in to a Family enjoying the festive season during this time of change and the invention of Christmas. Reference: DX 1295-1-1-01-01 At the beginning of the 19th Century, Christmas was hardly celebrated. However, during the Victorian Era Christmas as we know it today was invented, and our modest medieval traditions of evergreens and food were transformed. Much if this change was due to Queen Victoria and her marriage to the German-born Prince Albert. Albert introduced many aspects of Christmas as we know it, most notably the first Christmas tree in the royal family?s home. This was a tradition Albert brought to his family from his own childhood in Germany, but also to every other family in Britain. As a result the Victorians also transformed the idea of Christmas so that it became centred around the family, and our modern day traditions are deeply rooted in those of Victorian Society.

Presentation at the launch of 'Armanistan'

Description

A shipyard worker presenting flowers to the sponsor of the cargo ship ?Armanistan? at her launch from the shipyard of John Readhead & Sons Ltd, South Shields, 30 November 1948 (TWAM ref. 1061/1079). The task was sometimes given to the oldest or youngest worker at the yard. This set celebrates the achievements of the shipyard of John Readhead & Sons. The firm has played a significant role in the North East?s illustrious shipbuilding history and the development of South Shields. The company began in 1865 when John Readhead, a shipyard manager, entered into business with J Softley at a small yard on the Lawe at South Shields. Following the dissolution of the partnership in 1872, it continued as John Readhead & Co on the same site until 1880 when the High West Yard was purchased. After Readhead?s four sons were taken into the business in 1888 the company traded as John Readhead & Sons becoming a limited company in 1908. In 1968 the company was absorbed by the Swan Hunter Group and in 1977 became part of the nationalised British Shipbuilders. In the same year the last vessel was launched and the site was sold off in 1984. Readheads was prolific and built over 600 ships from 1865 to 1968, including 87 vessels for the Hain Steamship Company Ltd and over forty for the Strick Line Ltd. The shipyard also built four ships for the Prince Line, founded by Sir James Knott. The firm built vessels, which were involved in the major conflicts of the Twentieth Century. During the First World War they built patrol vessels and ?x? lighters (motor landing craft used in the Gallipoli campaign) for the Admiralty. During the Second World War the firm built tankers for the Normandy Landings. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons.

Consecration of Ravensworth Terrace Synagogue, Newcastle upon Tyne

Description

John Grantham, Sheriff of Newcastle attending the consecration of a new Jewish synagogue, Ravensworth Terrace, Newcastle upon Tyne, 8 September 1925 (TWAM ref. DF.GRA/1/3). 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.

Frederick Ellwood, fireman, arrested for breaking and entering

Description

Name: Frederick Ellwood Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Arrested on: 4 August 1914 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-254-Frederick Ellwood The Shields Daily News for 7 August 1914 reports: ?BREAKING AND ENTERING INTO A NORTH SHIELDS STORE. This morning at North Shields, Frederick Ellwood, fireman, Dublin and Francis Rice, labourer, North Shields, were charged with breaking and entering into the store of Messrs Harrison and Robinson, Clive Street, on the night of August 3rd and stealing therefrom a quantity of bacon, ham and other goods. Robert Appleby, 74 Linskill Street, storekeeper, said he locked up the stores, 10 Clive Street, at 12.55 on the Monday night. On opening the place the next morning he found the back door had been forced open and on examining the stock he missed the goods to the amount stated. PC Alexander stated that in company with PC Butler he saw Rice go up the stairs of the stores in a suspicious manner. Witness spoke to Ellwood who said Rice lived in the place. On going to the store, witness found the door had been forced open and he sent Butler for assistance. Inspector McQueen deposed to coming to the assistance of the officers and on going up the stairs of the house next to the store, he knocked at the door of a room occupied by Rice. After a time he got in and found the stuff in the room. He arrested Rice and Ellwood and on charging them the former said ?I took my part in it? and the latter ?I stole the things?. Defendants pleaded guilty and asked the bench to be lenient with them. Rice said he saw Ellwood was in very straightened circumstances and he got the things to help the family. Ellwood said he was out of work at the time. The bench ordered the defendants to pay 20s and costs or in default to go to prison for one month?. These images are taken from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 (TWAM ref. DX1388/1). This set is our selection of the best mugshots taken during the First World War. They have been chosen because of the sharpness and general quality of the images. The album doesn?t record the details of each prisoner?s crimes, just their names and dates of arrest. In order to discover the stories behind the mugshots, staff from Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums visited North Shields Local Studies Library where they carefully searched through microfilm copies of the ?Shields Daily News? looking for newspaper reports of the court cases. The newspaper reports have been transcribed and added below each mugshot. Combining these two separate records gives us a fascinating insight into life on the Home Front during the First World War. These images document the lives of people of different ages and backgrounds, both civilians and soldiers. Our purpose here is not to judge them but simply to reflect the realities of their time.

Folk Singing on the Village Green

Description

This is a photograph of a Folk Performance on the Village Green in Washington, UK. The photograph was taken at some point in the 1960's. Reference: 5417/110/3 This collection of images has been assembled in support of the Washington Heritage Festival 2013. The celebration of Washington brings together a variety of different themes. Washington is a Town in the City of Sunderland, Tyne & Wear. It is traditionally associated with Coal Industry, and notably known as the home of the Washington Family, ancestors of the First President of the United States George Washington. However, in 1964 Washington was designated a New Town and drastically changed. With the introduction of new industry such as the Nissan Car Factory Washington experienced a huge redevelopment in both its economy and community. These Photographs are taken from the Records of the Washington Development Corporation; held at Tyne & Wear Archives. The records document this change in industry, landscape and community in Washington between 1964 & 1988, and consist of many photographs.

Henry Wilson alias Charles Murray

Description

Name: Henry Wilson alias Charles Murray Arrested for: False Pretences Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 24th April 1903 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-17-Henry Wilson AKA Charles Murray The Shields Gazette for 25 April 1903 reports that: "A coloured man named Henry Wilson, or Murray, was charged at North Shields yesterday, with having obtained by means of false pretences food to the value of 6s from Ann Skipsey at Long Row, Percy Main, on November 24th and 25th last. Prosecutrix stated that defendant went to her house and asked if he could have lodgings. He told her his boat, the steamer Jubilee, was in the Albert Edward Dock, and he would be paid off with 68 in a day or two. She supplied him with food up to the value of 6s and he slept in the house for one night. Her son-in-law made inquiries and found that there was no such vessel as the Jubilee in Albert Edward Dock. She spoke to defendant about it and he asked her if he brought some of his shipmates would she believe him. She replied that she would and he went off then and she never saw him afterwards. Corroborative evidence was given and defendant, who had been convicted three times this year for a similar offence, was sent to gaol for two months with hard labour". These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 in the collection of Tyne & Wear Archives (TWA ref DX1388/1).
