Sarah Garbitt, arrested for stealing from shop doors

Description

Name: Sarah Garbitt Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 5 November 1907 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-45-Sarah Garbitt The Shields Daily News for 6 November 1907 reports: "SHOP DOOR ROBBERIES AT NORTH SHIELDS. A SAD CASE. At North Shields Police Court today, Sarah Garbutt (58), married, Howdon, was charged with having stolen on the 4th inst. from the doors of four shops a quantity of of dress material, shirts and towels, the property of Messrs M.J. Fisher, Thos. Heslop and James Southwick. Evidence was given to the effect that the goods were pawned by the prisoner. Accused pleaded guilty and said she would not have committed the theft had they not been starving. The husband of the prisoner, who was in court, was called forward. He appeared to be a decent, respectable old man and he told the magistrates they had been suffering from starvation. They had never been in a court in their lives before and he could assure the magistrates that if they dealt leniently with his wife she would not come back again. The Mayor: What are you? I am a miner by trade, but I lost my employment. Why? Through old age. How do you live? We depend on a son, but we only get from him 21s or 22s a week and we have to keep him. He is a young man and he gets no allowance for rent and receives no coal, so we have a good deal to do with the money. The Chairman said they had given the case serious consideration. They had almost been disposed to send the accused to prison, the thefts having been so continuous, but as this was apparently her first offence they would take a lenient view and give her the benefit of the First Offenders' Act and bind her over in the sum of 20s to be of good behaviour for 12 months, accepting the husband as bond." 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).

Oscar Carlson

Description

Name: Oscar Carlson Arrested for: Larceny Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 15 June 1903 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-19-Oscar Carlson The Shields Daily Gazette for 15 June 1903 reports that: "A Norwegian, named Oscar Carlsen, was charged with stealing a packet of tobacco valued 4.5d from the same shop [on the New Quay belonging to Francis Clark]. Sergt Proud stated he was at the tram accident on Saturday night and while he was attending to the injured people defendant went to the shop and commenced handling the goods. Witness pulled him away twice and the third time he took him into custody. Defendant then dropped the packet of tobacco behind his back. The Bench imposed a fine of 5s without costs". 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). This set contains mugshots of boys and girls under the age of 21. This reflects the fact that until 1970 that was the legal age of majority in the UK.

Shipyard workers at a cold frame bending machine

Description

Cold frame bending machine in operation at the North Sands shipyard of J.L. Thompson & Sons, Sunderland, February 1962 (TWAM ref. DS.JLT/5/4/4/2). This set celebrates the achievements of the famous Sunderland shipbuilding firm Joseph L. Thompson & Sons. The company?s origins date back to 1846 when the firm was known as Robert Thompson & Sons. Robert Thompson senior died in 1860, leaving his second son Joseph Lowes Thompson in control. In 1870 the shipyard completed its last wooden vessel and was then adapted for iron shipbuilding. By 1880 the firm had expanded its operations over much of North Sands and in 1884 completed the construction of Manor Quay, which served as fitting out and repair facilities. For many years in the late nineteenth century the yard was the most productive in Sunderland and in 1894 had the fourth largest output of any shipyard in the world. The Depression affected the firm severely in the early 1930s and no vessels were launched from 1931 to 1934. However, during those years the company developed a hull design giving greater efficiency and economy in service. During the Second World War the prototype developed by Joseph L. Thompson & Sons proved so popular that it was used by the US Government as the basis of over 2,700 Liberty ships built at American shipyards between 1942 and 1945. After the War the North Sands shipyard went on to build many fine cargo ships, oil tankers and bulk carriers. Sadly the shipyard closed in 1979, although it briefly reopened in 1986 to construct the crane barge ITM Challenger.

Description

Description

Postcard, sepia, of the head and shoulders of a young officer of the Royal Flying Corps during the First World War.

The Open Air Pool

Description

This is a photograph of maintenance work at the Open Air Pool, South Shields, c1930s. Reference: 3535/208/7 This photograph is part of a set that has been created to celebrate the opening of South Tyneside Council?s new leisure centre, Haven Point, on 28 October. It focuses in particular on life along the foreshore at South Shields during the 1950s but also includes a few images from further down the coast. South Shields has long been a popular seaside resort and also has a proud industrial heritage. Times have changed, though, and many of the old industries such as shipbuilding and coal mining have disappeared. Rather than stand still and accept this change in fortunes, South Tyneside Council is pressing ahead with an ambitious vision to transform the Foreshore, Town Centre and Riverside areas into vibrant destinations. Haven Point is a key part of this change. Tyne & Wear Archives and South Tyneside Local Studies Library have a vital role to play in this. As South Shields is regenerated and forever changed the Archives and Local Studies serve as its memory. We keep alive a window into the town?s past, preserving the history of people, places and industries that no longer exist. South Shields must look forward but its sense of direction will be lost if it forgets where it came from. These images, together with a fantastic selection from South Tyneside Local Studies Library, can be seen in a digital exhibition at Haven Point. You can also see images from the Local Studies Library online at www.southtynesideimages.org.uk/.

A worker at Philips

Description

This is a photograph of a Man working at Philips in Washington, UK. The photograph was taken at some point in the 1970's. Reference: 5417/353/3 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.
