The factory in the foreground is John Lynn & Co, Steam Winch manufacturer, which closed in the early 1960's and merged with the Sunderland Forge in the background.

Served some of my Apprenticeship at Lynn's before it closed. Then was transferred to the Sunderland Forge where I worked until the early 1970'S.

I wondered what the building's were just to the right of the main Sunderland to Durham line on the right hand side of the picture. Unusual shaped roofs, with chimneys at frequest intervals?
