A master model maker at Joseph L Thompson & Sons Ltd

Description

A master model maker at Joseph L Thompson & Sons Ltd, 1946 (TWAM ref. DS.JLT/5/3/1). 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

Name: James S. George Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 15 August 1906 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-93-James S George The Shields Daily News for 22 August 1906 reports: ?At North Shields Police Court today James George (15) was charged with having, between Aug. 4th and 11th, stolen 3s in money, a silver match-box stand, and several articles of clothing, valued at 2 10s, the property of his sister, Alice Mary George. The whole of the property had been recovered by Sergt. Hall from four different pawnbrokers, with whom they had been pledged by the accused, who pleaded guilty. Inspector Scougal said the accused had been three time convicted for larceny since April 1903. Accused was remanded for a week with a view to being committed to a reformatory.? The Shields Daily News for 24 April 1903 contains the details of one of the earlier cases. ?THEFT BY BOYS. Alexander George (13), James George (11), Henry Crow (13), Robert Charters (8), Montgomery Bryden (9) and Andrew Dodds (11), Stephenson Street, were charged with stealing a rabbit, valued at 1s 6d, from a backyard at 137 Linskill Street, the property of Sarah Spurling. Prosecutrix said that she missed a rabbit from her back premises, on the date named. Alfred Hodgson, an assistant with Mr Kelday, poulterer, Camden Street, said that Charters brought the rabbit to the shop and offered to sell it, saying his father was out of work. He gave him 6d for it and afterwards handed it over to the police. Detective Sergt. Scougal said he arrested and charged the accused. They admitted participating in the theft and in sharing the proceeds. Alex. George, James George, Andrew Dodds and Robt. Charters were then charged with stealing three pigeons, valued at 5s, from the backyard of 37 Jackson Street, on the 21st inst. William Williamson, a boy, said at 6.30pm on the 21st inst. he had a number of pigeons in a dovecot at the house of his parents. At 7pm they were missing. The birds were worth 5s. Later he went to a pigeon shop in the Borough Road and there identified two of them. Det.-Sergt. Scougal said he charged the accused and they admitted stealing the pigeons and selling two. The whole of the prisoners were ordered to be birched?. For an image of Alexander George see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/28065712265/in/album-72157.... The Shields Daily News for 20 March 1905 also reported on another case involving George. "THROWING MISSILES. James George and Robert Charters, little boys, were summoned for throwing missiles in Linskill Street on the 3rd inst. The evidence showed that the defendants and other boys were continually annoying a tradesman in that thoroughfare. On the date named potatoes were thrown into the shop. One struck the woman behind the counter on the head and another smashed a window, the broken pane having since been replaced by George's father. George was fined 2s 6d without costs and the case against Charters was dismissed." 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.

Conjurer entertaining children

Description

View of a children?s party following the launch of the bulk carrier ?Gloxinia?, 20 February 1958 (TWAM ref. DS.RDD/4/21/3). The vessel was launched by Dorothy Anne Robinson, daughter of Nicholas J. Robinson, a director of the Stag Line. 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.

Nissan Plot

Description

This is a photograph of the Plot of land reserved for Nissan in Washington, UK. It was taken at some point in the 1970's or early 1980's. Reference: 5417/79/2 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.

John Dowson, arrested for stealing from a gas meter

Description

Name: John Dowson Arrested for: Larceny Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 7 February 1905 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-65-John Dowson For an image of his accomplice Edward Roberts see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/19378323875/in/dateposted/. The Shields Daily News for 14 February 1905 reports: "THEFT FROM PENNY-IN-THE-SLOT METERS At North Shields Police Court to-day, before the Mayor and Mr J. Walton, Edward Roberts (19), messroom steward, Blyth and John Dowson (19), seaman, Wallsend, were charged with having stolen on the 30th ult. from an automatic gas meter at 33 Thrift Street the sum of 14s 8d, the moneys of the Tynemouth Gas Company. Mrs Cowey said that on the 30th ult. she was removing into the house when the accused came and asked to be allowed to look through. She told them the house was not to be let. In passing through one of the rooms Dowson put his hand on the gas meter and remarked it was very handy. They went away and next day witness found that the gas meter had been broken into and the box and money taken away. George Robson, a collector for the Gas Company said he had examined the meter and found that gas had been consumed to the value of 14s 8d. Sergt Hall said he arrested the accused in a lodging house on the 6th inst. He took them to the Bull Ring Police Station and charged them with the theft. They both replied: "Yes, that's right". There was a second charge against the prisoners of stealing from a gas meter at 37 Blyth Street, Percy Main, the sum of 2s 4d, the moneys of the Tynemouth Gas Company, between February 3 and 4. Similar evidence was given in this case. The accused, having obtained permission, were shown over the house and subsequently the money in the meter was missed. The prisoners admitted the charge and said that if the magistrates would allow them to go they would refund the money. Chief Constable Huish said he had only preferred two charges against the accused, but there were six or eight others. The prisoners were committed to gaol for 14 days in the second division for each offence - one month in all. The time spent in prison didn't deter Dowson and Roberts. Just over a month later The Shields Daily News for 18 March 1905 reported: "FOUND ON ENCLOSED PREMISES AT NORTH SHIELDS. SUSPICIOUS CHARACTERS SENT TO PRISON. At the North Shields Police Court this morning before Mr Isaac Black (in the chair) and Mr G.H. Stansfield - John Dowson (19), Gateshead and Edward Roberts (19), 53 Beaumont Street, Cowpen Quay, were charged on remand with being found on the enclosed premises of 9 Seymour Street, for an unlawful purpose, at 5 pm on the 16th inst. Both of the accused had been previously convicted of breaking into unoccupied houses and stealing money from gas meters, and they came out of prison as recently as Monday last. Mr Isaac Black (the chairman) said they had soon commenced again and as their recent imprisonment seemed to have been no caution to them, they would each be committed for six weeks with hard labour".

Tyne Bridge and Newcastle Quayside, 1950

Description

View of the Tyne Bridge and Newcastle Quayside from Gateshead, July 1950 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/5080B). Tyne & Wear Archives presents a series of images taken by the Newcastle-based photographers Turners Ltd. The firm had an excellent reputation and was regularly commissioned by local businesses to take photographs of their products and their premises. Turners also sometimes took aerial and street views on their own account and many of those images have survived, giving us a fascinating glimpse of life in the North East of England in the second half of the Twentieth Century.

Mooring the tanker 'Spinanger' after launch

Description

View of the tanker ?Spinanger? being moored after launch from the North Sands shipyard of J.L. Thompson & Sons, Sunderland, 22 October 1957 (TWAM ref. DS.JLT/4/PH/1/694/4/4). The launch of 'Spinanger' was unusual in that it was carried out without the assistance of tugboats. This was due to industrial action by the Wear tugboatmen. 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.
