Turbinia - Closeup

Description

A close view of the damage which 'Turbinia' sustained in 1907. She was moored at Wallsend when a ship launched from Stephenson's shipyard crashed into her. The picture shows where the bow of the other ship hit 'Turbinia's side. There was extensive damage to the hull, the guardrails were bent and part of the wheelhouse was destroyed. There was no great damage to her engines, though, and she was fully restored in the same year.

Jimmy Forsyth

Description

Jimmy Forsyth, photographer, 1913-2009. Jimmy Forsyth was born in Barry, South Wales on 15 August 1913, the son of John and Bertha Forsyth. On leaving school at 14 he became an apprentice fitter in a cement works repair shop, but later joined the merchant navy. He returned to Wales in 1938 to work for ICI at Hirwaun. He moved to Newcastle as a munitions volunteer in 1943 and found a room in Elswick, just off the Scotswood Road, working for ICI at Prudhoe. Just four days after starting work a metal splinter blinded him in one eye, but he continued to work at ICI in other capacities until 1946, when he was sacked. Following this he took various odd jobs, including running a general store for a while. Some time in the 1950s he acquired a camera and began recording the area he lived in. He continued to take photographs until only a short while before his death. In the late 1970s his black and white negatives were acquired for preservation by Benwell Library, and in 1979 the first exhibition of Jimmy's work was held at the Side Gallery in Newcastle. The publication of Scotswood Road by Bloodaxe Books in 1986, accompanied by another exhibition at the Side, and followed by a Tyne Tees Television documentary No Fancy Shades brought his work to a wider audience. He was awarded the Halina Award for photography in 1987 and an Open University Master's degree in 2002.

Description

LSE Seamstress 1971-1984. 'Mrs Baldwin has not been seen around the School much; she has spent most of the last thirteen years cheerfully working, or should it be 'beavering' away in her underground linen room. Over the years she has sewn curtains or nets for most of the windows in the Houhgton Street buildings and some of the halls of residence, as well as making hundreds of cushion and divan covers. Almost everyone at the School who wears a uniform or overall has had a button or a name tape or even, on the odd occasion, a patch to the seat of their trousers put on by Ethel. As the Christmas festivities approach each year she has been extra busy - in the Founders' Room blowing up balloons, making decorations or dressing the Christmas tree fairy in preparation for the childrens party.' LSE Magazine, November 1984, No68, p.23 IMAGELIBRARY/605 Persistent URL: archives.lse.ac.uk/dserve.exe?dsqServer=lib-4.lse.ac.uk&a...

The fishermen were intrigued by Rita's unusual technique

Description

View of model, Rita Fisher, posing for Turners, February 1955 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/13209A). To read a blog about Turners advertising techniques see www.twmuseums.org.uk/engage/blog/turners-saved-my-marriage/. Tyne and Wear Archives presents a set of images taken by the Newcastle-based firm Turners (Photography) Ltd. They were taken by the firm on is own account for possible use in their advertising campaigns. Turners frequently hired models to help promote their work and to encourage sales in their shops. Some of the shots are humorous or bizarre while others are quite suggestive. The images are fascinating for what they tell us about the times that produced them ? the fashions, the attitudes, the technology ? Most of the images are quirky and almost seem to invite comments. If you?d like to suggest alternative captions we?d be delighted to hear them! (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons.

Accused now pleaded guilty, and said he was very drunk when he committed the offence. He was fined 10s and costs or 14 days".
