Gateshead viewed from Newcastle, ca 1835

  • Description

    Engraving of a drawing by J. W. Carmichael, circa 1835. Depicts Gateshead as viewed from the roof of the Moot Hall, Newcastle Upon Tyne, looking south across the Tyne's stone bridge (1781-1866). At the time depicted, the High Level Bridge (1849-) had yet to be constructed. Much of the crowded Hillgate district seen here on Gateshead's east embankment (left side of the image) was destroyed in the Great Fire of October 1854. The windmills which gave the Windmill Hills district its name can be seen in background (in the largest image).
