Eldon Square, Newcastle

  • Description

    In the 1960s, before it was "improved" by the insensitive demolition of two of its sides (including the one facing us) to make way for the Eldon Square shopping mall. The featureless walls originally erected on the demolished two sides have recently been given a makeover to better connect them with the interior of the mall and encourage the square, the only green square at the heart of Newcastle, to be a living space again. Note the overhead wires for the trolleybuses, a feature of many cities at the time. I remember the yellow buses for Newcastle, blue for South Shields.
