My Gateshead friends want there photo collections seen so why not?. This is 'Allhusen's Chemical Works' in 1910

The banks of the river Tyne at Felling was a hive of Industry in the 1800s. This old photo shows the old Chemical Works in those days

This is a rare photo of the village called 'Felling Shore' on the edge of the river Tyne just along from Bill Quay.

Another view of the long gone village of 'Felling Shore' probably pre 1920s

Kevin Blair our Shipping Expert from Hebburn tells me this ship is the Bergen Line's 'Meteor' passing Felling Shore in 1925

An early photograph of Harrison's little shipyard at Bill Quay. This yard was formerly Boutlands building wooden vessels a hundred yrs earlier

Outside the Wardley Hotel (Which is still there today) in a horse drawn carriage in about 1920

The 'John Pit' in production in 1930 a year or two before it closed. Steam drove the steam engine for lifting the Cage up & down the pit shaft

A beautiful old photo of Felling 'John Pit' miners in 1890. The little boy could also have worked at the Pit as thousands of children did then.

Stone built houses on Heworth Lane around 1896 . The lane ran from where the Maiden Over is towards the river

Pelaw Main Staiths in 1900 between Bill Quay & Hebburn. That area of riverside was our playground as kids.
