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

Middle Docks and Engineering Company, South Shields, 1976

Description

Aerial view of Middle Docks & Engineering Company Ltd, South Shields, June 1976 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/4/CN10102C). 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
