Charlie Stubbs had his little business here sculling people across to Walker in his sculler boat. He was nicknamed 'Charlie Sculler' and I managed to find this photo of him for my website www.oldtyneside.co.uk. My Aunt Cecilia Rodgers worked in the Boneyard Office and lived at Tyne View 100 yds away with our McNeill relatives and she used Charlie Sculler's service every day. She used to come home for dinner as well & it cost a penny per trip. In those days there was 240 pennies to the £1.

This was the Town's rubbish dump. Today it is soiled over & landscaped & looks beautiful. As a young lad in the late 40s early 50s this riverside was our playground. I can remember hundreds of gas masks & tin helmets strewn around the tips & it never crossed our minds why? The war was never spoken about & we didn't think it unusual seeing gas masks etc? They could all be still there lying buried.

This was a small Travelling Fairground' on spare land called locally 'The square'. The Fair was probably there for just one week & then it would move on to another Town.

This area was known locally as 'The Bauxite'. Not a lot is recorded about this 'British Aluminium Co' apart from it produced Aluminium Hydroxide from the ore known as 'Bauxite'. A lot of waste known as red mud was a by-product of the process & it was dumped on the site producing hillocks/mounds of this red mud. It was fenced off to keep people off it.

In the 1960s to mid 70s when it closed forever this Factory was RW Transmissions a gearbox & gear making Company. Previously it had been George Angus another gear making company. Previous to that it had been the Reay Gear Works who'd bought the buildings in the late 1920s. The buildings were originally Platers Sheds belonging to Newcastle Shipbuilding Co who started in 1919 & went bankrupt 1921.
