Blair's Engine Works – this business started constructing railway locomotives and rolling stock in 1839 when it was called Fossick and Hackworth. By the 1850s railway business was falling away and the company diversified into the manufacture of marine steam engines for installation in ships being built at Stockton. Following the retirement of Thomas Hackworth and George Fossick's death, George Blair took over the company, which became Blair and Company. Business was good and Blair's was a much respected major employer in Stockton until the mid 1920s. By this time the company had been through several takeovers, suffered financial problems and orders declined. The works finally closed completely in 1932 either just before or just after this photograph was taken.

This railway line, called The North Shore Branch, was opened in 1833 by The Clarence Railway as a branch into Stockton from its main line at Norton. The Clarence was built as a direct competitor to the Stockton and Darlington Railway, suffered from a series of operating difficulties and consequently only had a short independent existence. The Clarence Railway does not feature greatly in railway literature, but there are accounts of its history and competition with its near neighbour in several books dealing with the history of railways on Teesside and in County Durham.

The Stockton and Darlington Railway line Stockton passed along this quayside to its terminus at Silver Street. Immediately after the official opening on 27 September 1825, locomotives were only used on freight trains; passenger services were provided by horse-drawn vehicles resembling stagecoaches with flanged wheels. There were no formal stations and passengers boarded and left the trains at convenient points along the line, often close to licensed premises. Passenger services along the quayside ceased in 1842 when a new passenger station was opened just off Bridge Road, adjacent to St Johns Well. Freight traffic lasted until 1967 when the line was closed completely and a town centre bypass road built along much of the trackbed.

This view is looking across Stockton from the north. The area to the left of the River Tees on the photo was in what was the former North Riding of Yorkshire. The area to the right of the River Tees was in County Durham.



In 1968 both sides of the Tees on this picture became part of the Teesside County Borough. Then in 1974 they became part of the Stockton-on-Tees borough in Cleveland County.



In 1996 Cleveland County was abolished and the area in this pic remains within Stockton on Tees borough.
