Gateshead, ca 1910

  • Description

    Gateshead's Swing Bridge, St Mary's Church and Hillgate viewed from Newcastle Upon Tyne (probably taken from the High Level Bridge). The bare area in front of St Mary's was laid waste by the Great Fire of 1854 and was not rebuilt. Many of the remaining Gateshead Quayside buildings (Hillgate) and Church Street above were later raised to make way for the foundations of the new Tyne Bridge (completed 1928), while the old tenements and houses on Church Walk and Bank Road were probably demolished in the 1930s.
