Along this stretch of riverside was quite a few boat building slipways that Newcastle Shipbuilding used 1919 to 1921. They chose a bad time to start a boat building yard directly after WW1 hence they went bust within 2 yrs

This was the Bone Yard in Walker. When the wind blew towards Hebburn the smell was terrible. They used to boil animal bones to make glue, make bone meal for agriculture. My aunty worked in the Office and used to get a sculler boat back and forth from where she lived at Tyne View with my Mcneil family. The sculler man was nick named Charlie Sculler.

The address of this house was Newcastle Shipbuilding House . My cousin's mate Davy Smith lived there. In 1919 a company calling themselves set up Newcastle ship building company but unluckily they went bust in 1921. The Plater's sheds stood empty for years and were eventually taken over by the Reay Gear Works . See the pin identifying their premises at the bottom of Prince Consort Rd.

This is where Cuthbert St started. My gran lived at 2 above what was called 'The Relief Office' which is where I placed the Pin. Out of work men queued in the back lane to collect any money due to them. It was a bit like the Dole. On that day my gran being a shy timid lady stayed home rather than walk through dozens of men. She had no front door and the only way into her flat was up the rear stairs .

Hebburn Theatre Royal that opened in 1897 & at one time was managed by Arthur Jefferson who's son Stan was one half of the comedy duo 'Laurel & Hardy'. Laurel was his stage surname. The fire that destroyed the Theatre was on Oct 7th 1950 so this aerial photo was taken after the fire.

I lived here ( An upstairs flat,14 Lyon St) from 1944 to 1953 so when this aerial photo was taken I was 6yrs old. The photo must be after October 7th 1950 because that was when the Hebburn Theatre Royal burned down & I & my parents watched the fire from our front door only about 50 yds from the fire.

St Aloysius Church. Attached to the church was the School for boys & girls but they were all kept separate. I went to that school from 1951 as a 7 yr old & we weren't allowed to mix with the girls who had their own classrooms. We couldn't even mix in the school yard & had to keep to our side of the white line..

Tyne View Terrace. It was once owned by Tennant's Chemical Co & homes for their managers/chemists. After the Company moved out of Hebburn the large property was rented out. My McNeill family rented one part of it from the 1930s to when it was demolished in the 50s. The pic is from my www.oldtyneside.co.uk website & shows my aunt Jane McNeill in Tyne View garden.

This Gear wheel/gearbox manufacturing factory was originally Platers Sheds built for the Newcastle Shipbuilding Co who started in 1919. Unfortunately they went bust in 1921 & a Gateshead company eventually bought the sheds in the late 20s. That company was Reay Gear Works. Later it was bought by George Angus & years later sold to Richardson Westgarth who called it RW Transmissions. It closed down in the mid 1970s & today that land is a housing estate.

This area was known locally as 'The Bauxite'. Not a lot is recorded about this 'British Aluminium Co' apart from it produced Aluminium Hydroxide from the ore known as 'Bauxite'. A lot of waste known as red mud was a by-product of the process & it was dumped on the site producing hillocks/mounds of this red mud. It was fenced off to keep people off it.
