  • Description

    Type : Photograph Medium : Print-black-and-white Description : A view of Dog Bank Newcastle upon Tyne taken in 1879-1880. The photograph shows Dog Bank taken from Pilgrim Street. In the foreground to the left is a public house and to the right a man sitting on bench in front of a building. The first shop on the left-hand side of Dog Bank is I. P. Sherry a Clothes Dealer with other shops beyond. There are also buildings on the right-hand side of Dog Bank. Collection : Local Studies Source of Information : Name of stairs and chare on right-hand side through to quayside is 'Plummer Chare' (it can be seen distinctly on negative). Small beer house at bottom of Pilgrim Street no. 241 kept by a S. McGuiness in 1882. But in Lloyd's Directory for 1885-6 it is kept by J. Patterson. So this gives the clue to the date of the photo. 1882 Directory - No. 3 R. Dixon Grocer. There are 33 door numbers on this left-hand side which means there are 16 doors or entrances. On the right there is probably no more than half this number due to the bottom end being occupied by big buildings.
