Panorama from Newcastle castle keep across the River Tyne to Gateshead.

  • Description

    "View southward from the Castle keep, with the High Level Bridge off to the left and King Edward Bridge in the right distance. In the foreground, Peppercorn Class A2 Pacific No. 60538 'Velocity' has come off Gateshead Depot, which with Gateshead Works stretches along the opposite bank of the River Tyne. (This scene will now be vastly different and less grim)." Photo by Ben Brooksbank, 1954.
