Ian Glendenning who's maternal grandparents came from Hebburn sent me 11 of the photos on this page. This one is St Nicholas's cathedral in 1920s.

Ian's lovely photo of the waterfall in Jesmond Dene in the 1920's

Ian's photo taken in the 1950's showing the old Shield's Ferry which shuttled back & forth to North shields.

Ian's beautiful 1920's photo of a little girl at Marsden with the rock behind her. That cave is no longer there.

A 1910 tinted postcard (real photo) of King St in 1910 looking towards the old Town Hall in the Market Place.

Ian's 1920's photo of an outdoor swimming pool on the sea front at Shields. I bet not many people knew about this pool?

Ian'a photo of the old Tug 'Plover' on right with a more modern Tug & what I think is the Minesweeper HMS 'Seabear'

Ian's photo of the Tyne Bridge which opened in 1929. Judging by the Crane on the Gateshead end, they are still working on it.
