Auditorium from the balcony at the Paramount Theatre, Newcastle

Description

View of the auditorium from the rear of the balcony at the Paramount Theatre, Pilgrim Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, September 1931 (TWAM ref. DX1677/1/1). The Odeon Cinema opened on Pilgrim Street, Newcastle upon Tyne on 7 September 1931. It as originally known as the Paramount Theatre but was taken over by Odeon in 1939. The Odeon?s luxurious dcor made it one of the country?s finest cinemas and arguably the North East?s best loved. Most of the images in this album date from its opening and convey a real sense of the building?s elegance and beauty. Sadly the cinema closed in 2002 and was demolished in 2017. This image is from an album which was kindly donated to the Archives by the Northumberland & Newcastle Society.

The Tyne Bridge arch nears completion

Description

The Tyne Bridge arch is nearly complete as a girder is lowered into place above the River Tyne, 23 February 1928 (TWAM ref. 3730/15/10). The Tyne Bridge is one of the North East?s most iconic landmarks. These photographs were taken by James Bacon & Sons of Newcastle and document its construction from March 1927 to October 1928. They belonged to James Geddie, who was Chief Assistant Engineer on the construction of the Bridge with Dorman, Long & Co. Ltd. of Middlesbrough.

Jesmond Dene in Winter

Description

Scenic view of Jesmond Dene in the snow, January 1963 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/30662F). If you look carefully on the left there appears to be a mysterious headless body walking towards the bridge. The North East has some of the most stunning scenery in the United Kingdom. The region looks great in any weather but adding a touch of snow or frost can really transform the appearance of the landscape. Tyne & Wear Archives is proud to present a series of wintry images from our collections to celebrate the beauty of North East England.

Launch of the passenger liner 'Empress of Canada'

Description

View of the passenger liner 'Empress of Canada' ready for launch at the Walker Naval Yard, Newcastle upon Tyne, 10 May 1960 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/4/AG1449A). This set of images celebrates the achievements of the Naval Yard at High Walker. The Yard was established by Sir W.G. Armstrong Whitworth & Co Ltd as a replacement for the firm?s Elswick Shipyard. The size of the Elswick yard and its location above Newcastle Swing Bridge meant that by the early twentieth century it had become unsuitable for building large warships. Shipbuilding operations started at the Naval Yard in 1913 and by the end of the First World War all shipbuilding at Elswick had ceased. Between 1913 and 1928 the yard completed 37 warships, 29 merchant ships and 30 tankers. In April 1928, though, it was placed on a care and maintenance basis. The yard re-opened in 1930 to build the liner ?Monarch of Bermuda? but after her completion in November 1931 had to close again from lack or orders. In May 1934, however, the yard re-opened and went on to play an important role in the Second World War. During the War the yard delivered 72 ships including a battleship, a monitor, 4 aircraft-carriers, 3 cruisers, 22 destroyers, 15 submarines and numerous landing craft. After the War the Naval Yard was busy with merchant shipping. Giant tankers and famous passenger liners, such as the ?Empress of England?, were built at Walker. From 1953 onwards the Yard also started building warships again, including the County-class destroyer HMS Glamorgan, launched in 1964. Difficult times lay ahead, though, and in 1968 the shipyards on the Tyne were merged to form Swan Hunter and Tyne Shipbuilders. On 15 February 1980 the containership ?Dunedin? was the last vessel to be launched at the Naval Yard bringing to an end a proud shipbuilding history.

Passenger liner 'Berengaria' on the River Tyne

Description

A view of the passenger liner 'Berengaria' under tow on the River Tyne (TWAM ref. 1027). She was owned by Cunard and in 1921 was sent with ?Aquitania? to the Walker Naval Yard of Armstrong Whitworth, where both were converted from coal to oil burning engines and various minor repairs were carried out. This set of images celebrates the achievements of the Naval Yard at High Walker. The Yard was established by Sir W.G. Armstrong Whitworth & Co Ltd as a replacement for the firm?s Elswick Shipyard. The size of the Elswick yard and its location above Newcastle Swing Bridge meant that by the early twentieth century it had become unsuitable for building large warships.

View of Newcastle from Westgate Road

Description

View of Newcastle upon Tyne from Westgate Road flats, August 1963 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/31921A). Tyne & Wear Archives presents a series of images taken by the Newcastle-based photographers Turners Ltd. The firm had an excellent reputation and was regularly commissioned by local businesses to take photographs of their products and their premises. Turners also sometimes took aerial and street views on their own account and many of those images have survived, giving us a fascinating glimpse of life in the North East of England in the second half of the Twentieth Century.
