Irene Gargett saw one of my Monkton photos in the Gazette, so got intouch with me to lend me her Handyside family photos taken in Monkton.

Irene's grandfather George Edward Handyside at the wheel of the Steam Tractor at West Farm, Monkton about 1924

Irene loaned me this original photo of the 'Lord Nelson' long before the one that stands today was built.

Gordon Mitchell kindly loaned me this photo of Boal's Fish Merchants on the corner of Hibernian Rd & Grange Rd.

Gordon's photo of the derelict looking Picture House in North St which was eventually demolished around 2005-6

Gordon Mitchell's photo taken in 'Blackie's Dene' . Mrs Cameron & a Landa Rae/Reay are two of those on the photo

This is Postcard I've just bought showing the Town Hall around the time it was built in 1902. It was posted in 1905.

Hebburn born Norman Shaw kindly sent me the following five pieces of his 1947 Jarrow Grammar School panoramic photo..

The second piece of Norman Shaw's photograph.

The third piece of the Jarrow Grammar School photo taken 60 yrs ago this October

The fourth piece of the photo which can be scanned & reassembled.

The final piece of the Jarrow Grammar photo of the 1947 pupils.

I 'scrounged' this scan from a very generous Ebay seller showing Ormonde St around 1912 possibly on a Saturday seeing it looks so busy

This is a tinted Postcard I bought showing Ormonde St. The card was posted in 1905.
