Whites Marine offices and main gate alongside Prince Consort Rd. My mother was born 1922 and she told me that times were hard and sometimes she'd stand outside Whites at 'knocking off time' hoping for uneaten 'bait' (sandwiches) off the workmen.

As a young girl in the late 1920s early 1930s my mother (born 1922) lived here at 2 Cuthbert St. It was upstairs and above the Relief Office which was similar to the Dole. Once a week the out of work men would form a long queue in the back yard and out into the lane. As the entrance to the upstairs was by an outside wooden staircase, my Gran never went out those days. She was a very shy lady and didn't like having to wind her way past all those men.

What locals called 'Bottom Reyrolles' . Reyrolles made electrical switchgear & started in Hebburn about 1902 when Alphonse Reyrolle came to start his business. At it's peak Reyrolles employed 11,000 people, possibly more. My father worked for them for 48 yrs & they were a very good firm to work for.

We called this the Copperworks Pond. It was a manmade brick lined reservoir & after Tharsis pulled out of Hebburn the reservoir remained unfenced, deep & dangerous. A lad called Colqhoun born about 1944 drowned in it about 1950. It was a magnet for us kids catching little fish called sticklebacks.

This was a gear wheel & gearbox manufacturing factory. Originally the building was built for the Newcastle Shipbuilding Company who started off in 1919 but went bust in 1921. The Sheds & land leading to the riverside was auctioned off in 1925 but no one bought it. Items then were sold off gradually & cheaply & Gateshead company Reay Gear Works ended up with the Sheds & started off in the town. Later George Angus bought the Factory & continued Gear making. Later still Richardson Westgarth bought the factory calling themselves RW Transmissions. They closed down in the mid 1970s. Photo from my www.oldtyneside.co.uk website
