John Dobson's House, New Bridge Street

  • Description

    "The square, white building on the left was built by the architect, John Dobson, as his private house in 1825 and he lived here until his death in 1865. Tyne and Wear HER(8778): Newcastle, New Bridge Street, No. 49, Dobson House It is now part of the 'Liquid & Envy' nightclub whose entrance is on the right. Although this Newcastle night-spot has had many changes of name since, it was from 1925, the Oxford Galleries, famed in both real-life as a popular and stylish Dance Hall and bars, but also in fiction as film locations for 'Get Carter' and the TV series, 'Spender'. It morphed easily into the nightclub scene in the late 1960s as Tiffany's, Studio, Ritzy and Ikon." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010.
