This was Reyrolle's 'Newtown Works'. The Company was split in two by the railway lines & the other part was known as Reyrolles 'Bottom' works. It can just be seen at the side of this photo

The Tharsis Sulpher & Copper Companies abandoned unfenced Reservoir. No Health & Safety like we have today because around this time a 6 or 7 yr old boy drowned in this water. It was deep with steep sloping brick lined sides.

The Fever Hospital. My mother's little sister Margaret Rodgers died in this Hospital age 5 in 1935. She was in isolation & the only way the family could see her was to look through the window from outside.

This expanse of derelict looking land from the riverside to close to Glen St houses including a reservoir used to be the Tharsis Sulpher & Copper Works. They started here in Hebburn in the 1860s. Kids were soon attracted to the reservoir which I remember personally as we used to catch sticklebacks in it. We were very wary of its danger because the sides were brick & sloped steeply into the depths. A couple of children living in the Newtown drowned in it in the early 1900s & in about 1950 ish a lad that I knew called Colqhoun fell in & drowned,
