South Benwell

  • Description

    Benwell was still a predominantly rural area when this photo was taken, circa 1880. St James Church is visible on the sky line to the left, South Benwell Houseis in the tress to the left and the various buildings of Paradise hamlet are visible across the middle of the image. South Benwell Brickworks fills the river bank. The man (third from the right) at the front of the photo has a huge grin on his face!
