Description"The Baltic Flour Mill was one of a number of mills located along the banks of the Tyne, all of which, due to their size, were prominent local landmarks. It was built by the Rank Hovis company to a late-1930s design and completed in 1950. It was extended in 1957 by the addition of an animal feed mill. At its height, the mill employed around 300 people and about 100 were still employed when the company closed the mill in 1981 http://www.gateshead.gov.uk/Leisure%20and%20Culture/attractions/BALTIC/Facts.aspx . In 2002 the mill building was reopened as the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art (BALTIC), an international centre for contemporary art http://www.balticmill.com/about/baltic-history . BALTIC is a registered charity." Photo by David Dixon, 2016.
