Shipyard of William Doxford & Sons Ltd, Sunderland

Description

This is a Photograph of King George V leaving Doxfords shipyard, Pallion, 15 June 1917. Reference: DS.DOX/6/14/1/3 On 22 November Prince William will be visiting Sunderland and South Tyneside to take part in a number of youth development events. During the visit he will also officially open Haven Point, the new leisure centre in South Shields. To celebrate this Tyne & Wear Archives has produced a short flickr set remembering past royal visits to the region?s shipyards. Most of the visits featured here took place during difficult times and they gave a real boost to public spirits in the face of two World Wars. A short blog relating to these images can be read here . These images are part of the Tyne & Wear Archives Shipyard Collection. In July 2013 the outstanding historical significance of the Collection was recognised by UNESCO through its inscription to the UK Memory of the World Register.

74" telescope on display for the Festival of Britain

Description

This photograph shows a 74" reflector built by Grubb Parsons in Newcastle upon Tyne on display for the Festival of Britain, 1951 (TWAM ref. DS.GP). The telescope was manufactured for the Mount Stromlo Observatory near Canberra, Australia. This photograph is taken from the Grubb Parsons Ltd collection at Tyne & Wear Archives. The records of Grubb Parsons Ltd, Newcastle upon Tyne, England, consist of 65 linear metres (213 linear feet) of files, plans, photographs and glass plate negatives relating to this internationally renowned firm's manufacture of precision telescopic instruments. The original Business was founded in the early nineteenth century by Thomas Grubb, in 1925 the company was acquired by Sir Charles Parsons and continued to manufacture Telescopic and Astronomical instruments until 1985. This image is taken from a large collection that documents the work of Grubb Parsons Ltd at their workshop in Walkergate, Newcastle upon Tyne. It was here that Grubb Parsons Ltd manufactured Telescopic and Astronomical equipment for companies and observatories world wide. Their equipment was designed and built for use and research across the Globe, to name only a few of these locations Grubb Parsons Ltd supplied to the UK, Switzerland, Denmark, Egypt, South Africa, Greece, Australia, Japan, India, Hawaii, Poland, Chile, Canada, France and Spain.

Rudder frame ready for shipment

Description

Rudder frame ready for shipment from the Elswick Works, c1928 (TWAM ref. 1027/9). ?Workshop of the World? is a phrase often used to describe Britain?s manufacturing dominance during the Nineteenth Century. It?s also a very apt description for the Elswick Works and Scotswood Works of Vickers Armstrong and its predecessor companies. These great factories, situated in Newcastle along the banks of the River Tyne, employed hundreds of thousands of men and women and built a huge variety of products for customers around the globe. The Elswick Works was established by William George Armstrong (later Lord Armstrong) in 1847 to manufacture hydraulic cranes. From these relatively humble beginnings the company diversified into many fields including shipbuilding, armaments and locomotives. By 1953 the Elswick Works covered 70 acres and extended over a mile along the River Tyne. This set of images, mostly taken from our Vickers Armstrong collection, includes fascinating views of the factories at Elswick and Scotswood, the products they produced and the people that worked there. By preserving these archives we can ensure that their legacy lives on. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons.

The Scooter Boat Lake

Description

This is a photograph of the Scooter Boat Lake, South Marine Park, South Shields, August 1950. Reference: DT.TUR/2/5197A 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/.

James E. Brown, arrested for obtaining money by false pretences

Description

Name: James E Brown Arrested for: False Pretences Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 12 October 1904 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-57-James E Brown The Shields Daily News for 12 October 1904 reports: "James Brown (21), 36 Hadrian Road, Wallsend, was charged with having obtained by means of false pretences the sum of 1s 6d, the moneys of Robert English. The wife of the prosecutor, who resides at 16 Burdon Street, Percy Main, said that on the 8th ult. the prisoner came to her house and from certain representations he made to her she lent him 1s 6d for an hour. Robert English, a railway guard, said he was branch secretary of the Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants and he had never seen the prisoner before that morning. He was not a member of the society and there was no money due to him. PC Brown said he arrested the prisoner and charged him with the fraud. He replied "I cannot remember getting that money. I must have been drunk. I do not, however, deny having got it". Accused told the magistrates he had gone to the wrong house. This was his 5th appearance and he was fined 10s and 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).

The bar on the cargo ship 'Silverbriar'

Description

View of the bar on the cargo ship ?Silverbriar?, February 1948 (TWAM ref. DS.JLT/4/PH/2/1). She was launched at the North Sands shipyard of J.L. Thompson & Sons, Sunderland, 21 May 1947. 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.

The plates must be made perfectly flat

Description

This photograph, taken in the Hawthorn Leslie yard, Hebburn is captioned 'The plates must be made perfectly flat'. Reference: 2931-43-15 This image is taken from an album produced by the world famous shipbuilding and engineering firm of Hawthorn Leslie. The album gives us a fascinating glimpse of life at the company's shipyard at Hebburn from the late 1930s to the 1960s. There are remarkable images of the men at work in the yard and a poignant series showing the terrible damage caused during the Second World War to HMS Kelly, one of Hawthorn Leslie's best loved ships. This particular collection of images follows the Birth and ultimate Death of a ship. From the craft and pride in its production and the joy in its performance, to the devastation and price of its destruction. A blog about this fascinating collection can been viewed here on the Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums website.

Meeting five sets of twins

Description

View of John Grantham, Lord Mayor of Newcastle, meeting five sets of twins during a visit to Atkinson Road School, 14 December 1936 (TWAM ref. DF.GRA/5/1). 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.
