Plater's Shed at Readhead's shipyard, South Shields

Description

Profile burning machine in operation in the Plater?s Shed at the shipyard of John Readhead & Sons Ltd, South Shields, May 1963 (TWAM ref. 1061/1196). This set celebrates the achievements of the shipyard of John Readhead & Sons. The firm has played a significant role in the North East?s illustrious shipbuilding history and the development of South Shields. The company began in 1865 when John Readhead, a shipyard manager, entered into business with J Softley at a small yard on the Lawe at South Shields. Following the dissolution of the partnership in 1872, it continued as John Readhead & Co on the same site until 1880 when the High West Yard was purchased. After Readhead?s four sons were taken into the business in 1888 the company traded as John Readhead & Sons becoming a limited company in 1908. In 1968 the company was absorbed by the Swan Hunter Group and in 1977 became part of the nationalised British Shipbuilders. In the same year the last vessel was launched and the site was sold off in 1984. Readheads was prolific and built over 600 ships from 1865 to 1968, including 87 vessels for the Hain Steamship Company Ltd and over forty for the Strick Line Ltd. The shipyard also built four ships for the Prince Line, founded by Sir James Knott. The firm built vessels, which were involved in the major conflicts of the Twentieth Century. During the First World War they built patrol vessels and ?x? lighters (motor landing craft used in the Gallipoli campaign) for the Admiralty. During the Second World War the firm built tankers for the Normandy Landings. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons.

George Herbert Morton alias Robinson, plater's marker, arrested for theft

Description

Name: George H Morton alias Robinson Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 9 March 1906 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-85-George H Morton AKA Robertson The Shields Daily News for 28 March 1906 reports: "A DISHONEST LODGER AT NORTH SHIELDS. At North Shields Police Court, George Herbert Morton, alias Robinson (17), plater's marker, 11 Park Square, West Hartlepool, was charged on remand with having stolen a gold filled watch, a gold chain, a locket and a scarf pin, valued at 5, the property of John William Nicholson, on the 14th inst. Prosecutor, who is a bricklayer, living at 93 Stephenson Street, said that on the 13th inst. the accused came to that address as a lodger and shared a bedroom with him. The following day the prisoner disappeared and he (prosecutor) missed the articles mentioned in the charge from a drawer in his room. Mr J.E. Leighton, Police Court Missionary, West Hartlepool, stated that he ascertained at the police station in that town that the accused was wanted for theft. He went to the lad's house and asked him where the things were that he had stolen. The lad began to cry and produced the articles. Witness subsequently came to North Shields and saw the prosecutor, whom he afterwards accompanied to the police station. A clergyman from Hartlepool gave the accused a very good character and said he had an exceptionally good home. Witness could not account for him having done wrong but he believed that if the magistrates allowed him to go home he would listen to his advice and try to do better. Chief Constable Huish said unfortunately the accused was wanted at Gateshead and Sunderland. The Bench bound the father over in the sum of 5 to bring the accused up for judgement if called upon within six months". 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.

John W. Hoole alias Thomas McNeish, arrested for stealing money

Description

Name: John W. Hoole alias Thomas McNeish Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 6 July 1915 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-260-John W Hoole AKA Thomas McNeish The Shields Daily News for 15 July 1915 reports: ?PLATER?S THEFT FROM A WOMAN?S PURSE IN A NORTH SHIELDS FISH SHOP. John Wm. Hoole (23), plater, was charged on remand at North Shields yesterday with having stolen, on the 5th inst. the sum of 10s 6d, belonging to Mrs Jennie Young. Prosecutrix, the wife of Joseph Young, residing in Roseberry Avenue, Preston, said about 9pm on the 5th inst. she went into the fish shop at the corner of Borough Road and Gardner Street and sat down on a seat. She had her purse in her hand and it contained at that time 10s 6d in silver, including a half-crown and three two shilling pieces. Shortly afterwards the accused and two soldiers came in and sat down on the same form. Witness got up and left but as soon as she got to the door she remembered she had left her purse lying on the seat. She went back and saw the accused pick her purse up and hand it to a solider to give to her. When she received the purse she found it was open and the money was missing. The soldier sent for a policeman and the accused was taken into custody. Pte. Gilbert of the 2nd Dragoon Guards, at present attached to the Duke of Wellington?s Regiment. Said he had known accused for about a week prior to the 5th inst. On that night accused joined witness and another soldier in a public house. He said he had no money and he had to borrow 1s from a woman before he could stand the ?drinks?. Afterwards he asked them to go to the fish and chip shop. The woman who lost her purse was sitting nearest to the accused. After the woman went out and came back accused picked up the purse and asked witness to give it to the woman. Witness did so and as the woman was moving away accused handed witness a 2s piece, saying ?Here?s 2s for you and your mate to get a drink?. Witness asked him where he got the money and accused replied ?You never know what money you?ve got?. When the woman complained that the money had been stolen from her purse witness sent for the police so that the matter might be cleared up. Det. Graham deposed to taking the accused into custody. As he went towards accused he heard a jingle of money and afterwards found two 2s pieces on the floor near where he was sitting. He recovered 5s from the accused in addition and also the 2s from the witness Gilbert. Accused pleaded not guilty. Asked to account for the 5s which was found upon him, when he told the soldiers that he had no money at all earlier in the night, accused said he had kept quiet about that money because he needed it to get to Southampton. He had, he said, been working at Palmer?s where he earned 4 per week. The Bench found the case clearly established and a previous conviction being proved against him at the Moot Hall, Newcastle, where he was sent to gaol for six months for the theft of a watch and jewellery, they committed him to prison for one month?. These images are taken from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 (TWAM ref. DX1388/1). This set is our selection of the best mugshots taken during the First World War. They have been chosen because of the sharpness and general quality of the images. The album doesn?t record the details of each prisoner?s crimes, just their names and dates of arrest. In order to discover the stories behind the mugshots, staff from Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums visited North Shields Local Studies Library where they carefully searched through microfilm copies of the ?Shields Daily News? looking for newspaper reports of the court cases. The newspaper reports have been transcribed and added below each mugshot. Combining these two separate records gives us a fascinating insight into life on the Home Front during the First World War. These images document the lives of people of different ages and backgrounds, both civilians and soldiers. Our purpose here is not to judge them but simply to reflect the realities of their time.
