The Station Bridge. Trains ran from South Shields to Newcastle upon Tyne and called in at Hebburn. I was born in 1944 and in my time the line was electrified.

The ground floor on this corner was 2-4 Cuthbert St and was the 'Relief Office' which was a bit like the Dole. Men would queue in the back lane one day a week for some financial help. My gran lived upstairs (Cecilia Rodger) and the entrance to her Flat was via the back yard up an external staircase. Cecilia was a very shy lady so on that day she stayed in the house all day rather than go in and out past a queue of men.

The Council Yard was on this land which was between the railway lines and Glen St. Not many years later (in ww2) the yard was bombed and quite a few people were killed.

This building in the thumbnail photo Ive attached from about 1914 is named 'Urinals' on a 1914 map. Is it still a Urinal in 1927 though?

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.

This is Bauxite waste that was left in big mounds when the Bauxite Co moved out of the town. The waste was a reddish colour & stained your shoes so we all knew to keep off it.
