061889:John Dobson Street Newcastle upon Tyne Ermel Trevor 1995

  • Description

    Type : Photograph Medium : Print-colour Description : A view of John Dobson Street Newcastle upon Tyne taken in 1995. The photograph shows John Dobson Street after part of the decking which crossed over the street has been removed. The City Library is on the left-hand side of John Dobson Street. Bewick Court is in the background standing on the remaining decking.This is on the north-east side of the main shopping area in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne. The vision for this area when it was redeveloped in the late 1960s and early 1970s had been of raised walkways which kept people and traffic apart as much as possible. The experiment was not entirely successful although some of the walkways remain and are used regularly. Bewick Court is a block of flats which is built on columns straddling John Dobson Street.
