003058:Broad Chare Newcastle upon Tyne 1921

  • Description

    Type : Photograph Medium : Print-black-and-white Description : The name chare is a local word for a street and is believed to have been derived from the saxon word cer or cerre meaning a turning. There were many streets known as chares which ran up from the Quayside to the centre of the town but many were destroyed in the fire of 1854. The Broad Chare survived the fire. It is called broad because it was the widest of the chares in the area.
