DescriptionFred Cummings, aged about 45, who died on the way to the infirmary from injuries received in a shell shop at Elswick, was to have been married in three weeks time to a Newcastle lady. He had lodged in Newcastle for three years, and prior to commencing work Armstrong's, served on board the s.s. Viking, afterwards the s.s. Viknor, which was lost with all hands in January. He was a well known amateur boxer, and was very popular with his shop-mates at Elswick. This photograph was published in the Illustrated Chronicle on the 21st of April 1915. During the Great War the Illustrated Chronicle published photographs of soldiers and sailors from Newcastle and the North East of England, which had been in the news. The photographs were sent in by relatives and give us a glimpse into the past. The physical collection held by Newcastle Libraries comprises bound volumes of the newspaper from 1910 to 1925. We are keen to find out more about the people in the photographs. If you recognise anyone in the images and have any stories or information to add please comment below.
