John Dobson Street

  • Description

    "John Dobson Street was built in the 1960s to relieve the pressure of traffic on the parallel Northumberland Street, which was then a major through route. Dobson (born 1787) was a locally-famous Newcastle architect who worked with Richard Grainger in a grand building scheme for the town centre ('Grainger Town'), a style now known as Tyneside Classical. Among many other buildings, he designed Newcastle Central Station, Grey Street and St Thomas' Church On the left is the City Pool [[1670002]], situated on Northumberland Road which crosses ahead. Further down the street, Bewick Court dominates the scene, towering on stilts over the road [[1671430]]" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010.
