Aerial view of Alnwick, 1959

Description

Aerial view of Alnwick, Northumberland, January 1959 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/21259C). The North East has some of the most stunning scenery in the United Kingdom. The region looks great in any weather but adding a touch of snow or frost can really transform the appearance of the landscape. Tyne & Wear Archives is proud to present a series of wintry images from our collections to celebrate the beauty of North East England.

HMS Thisbe at sea

Description

Port side view of the R-class destroyer HMS Thisbe at sea, 1917 (TWAM ref. 2931 War29). The shipyard of R. & W. Hawthorn Leslie at Hebburn built many fine warships. During the First World War the firm built 2 light cruisers, 3 destroyer leaders and 25 torpedo boat destroyers. The firm also built machinery and boilers for 2 battleships, and a further 3 light cruisers. These and other warships built by Hawthorn Leslie before the War, are remembered in this set. There are remarkable images of warships under construction at Hebburn, as well as fascinating shots of the people who attended the launches. The set also contains majestic views of the ships at sea. The images are not only a testimony to the skill of those who designed and built these ships but also to the courage of those who sailed in them.

HMS Ghurka at sea

Description

Starboard side view of HMS Ghurka at sea, 1908 (TWAM ref. 2931 War17). HMS Ghurka was a Tribal-class destroyer launched by Hawthorn Leslie on 29 April 1907. Tragically, HMS Ghurka was sunk on 8 February 1917 after striking a German mine off the coast at Dungeness in Kent. The shipyard of R. & W. Hawthorn Leslie at Hebburn built many fine warships. During the First World War the firm built 2 light cruisers, 3 destroyer leaders and 25 torpedo boat destroyers.

Services on the A1 in 1965

Description

View of petrol station on the A1 at Washington, 1965 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/36378C). The modern Washington Services look rather different. This site was to become Crowther Industrial Estate. 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the creation of Washington New Town. It was officially established on 24 July 1964 and since then the area has witnessed massive changes. Old pit terraces have been replaced with modern housing, thousands of new jobs have been created, great new shopping and leisure facilities have been built and a derelict industrial landscape has been reclaimed and transformed. To celebrate this anniversary Tyne & Wear Archives has brought together a set of images of Washington as it was 50 years ago. These were commissioned by Washington Development Corporation, which was responsible for planning, designing and building the New Town. The images are an important reminder of Washington's past. They reflect how much of the town has changed beyond recognition. The town will continue to evolve over the next fifty years and we must make sure that the memories continue to be preserved.

Description

Aerial view of the Iron Ore Quay, Tyne Dock, July 1962 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/29586E). 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.

HMS Jervis on sea trials

Description

View of HMS Jervis on sea trials, 1939 (TWAM ref. DS.HL/2/100/17). She was a J-Class destroyer and the sister ship of HMS Kelly. 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.
