The Reay Gear Works. Previously the factory were the Platers Sheds belonging the Newcastle Shipbuilding Co. They had about 8 berths at the riverside, but only lasted a couple of years from 1919 and then went bust. Pics on my www.oldtyneside.co.uk website

This was Tyne View Terrace, previously owned by the Tennant's Chemical Works which was on the land next to it. In this period it was rented to a few families. My relatives the McNeill's lived in one part of it. Next door was a music teacher called Mrs Sewell. Some pics taken there are on my www.oldtyneside.co.uk website with thousands of old images .

This was the Bone Yard. The smells that came from the chimneys often blew over to Hebburn across the river. All older people in Hebburn knew of the Bone Yard.
