Aerial view of South Shields, 1977

Description

Aerial view of South Shields, showing King Street and the Riverside area, May 1977 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/4/CN10583C). The image also shows Smiths Dock, North Shields in the distance. Tyne & Wear Archives is proud to present a series of aerial photographs of South Tyneside. These images were captured by the Newcastle-based photographic firm Turners Ltd. Many of the images reflect the district's rich industrial heritage, showing businesses and places that no longer exist. We would be delighted if you could help us to tag these by adding the names of streets and buildings that you recognise. Old photographs can often stimulate distant memories and we would also love to hear any reminiscences that these images inspire (Copyright) We're happy for you to share these digital images within the spirit of The Commons. Please cite 'Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums' when reusing. Certain restrictions on high quality reproductions and commercial use of the original physical version apply though; if you're unsure please email archives@twmuseums.org.uk

Charlton said he saw the accused at 3.30 in the morning leave the public shelter.He accosted him and asked him what he was doing there and he replied that he had just come from Blyth. Witness asked the accused what he had in his pockets and he replied "Nothing". On searching him he found a screw driver and upon inspecting the premises he discovered that the door of a sweet shop had been forced open. There were paint marks on the tool corresponding with the colour of the paint on the door. Prisoner, on being formally charged, pleaded not guilty and said he had nothing to say. He was ordered to take his trial at the next Quarter Sessions". The Shields Daily News for 19 September 1905 reports: ?BREAKING INTO A CAFÉ AT EAST HOWDON. YOUNG MAN COMMITTED FOR TRIAL. At North Shields Police Court today, William Buckham (20), no fixed abode, 8th appearance, was charged with breaking and entering a café at East Howdon between the 22nd and 23rd July and stealing therefrom a quantity of cigars and cigarettes, a tin of sardines and a tin of salmon valued at £1 10s, the property of Mr H.H. Higginbottom. Mr G.H. Hall, manager of the café, said that on the night of the 22nd July he left the premises secure and upon returning shortly after 10 o?clock next morning, he found they had been broken into. Access had been obtained through the roof. The skylight had been smashed and the thief had lowered himself down into the room below by means of a rope. Witness examined the stock and missed the articles mentioned in the charge, which were valued at £1 10s. Detective Sergt. Scougal put in a letter which had been received by the Chief Constable (Mr J.H. Huish). In this letter, the prisoner, who was in custody on another charge of breaking into a shelter, confessed that he had broken into the café and stolen the goods referred to. Witness charged him and he pleaded guilty. Mr Huish asked the accused if he had written the letter and he replied in the affirmative. The magistrates committed the accused for trial at the Quarter Sessions?.
