Ann St which not many years later was bombed in WW2. The gap where the bomb hit is still there today as the houses were never replaced.

This will be the Lead Works. The dust used to settle on nearby roof & this is why the 'Royal Hotel' was nicknamed 'The White Lead' due to the dust. The photo is from my www.oldtyneside.co.uk website

Bonnacord St named as a tribute to the Aberdeen workers who came to work in Mr Leslie's new Shipyard in the 1860s. Bonnacord means 'Good Agreement' in French & is Aberdeen's Motto.

In 1914 this was 'The Portland Cement Works' but this aerial view is 21 yrs later so I don't know if it was still the same owner.

Hebburn Ferry Landing. The photo is from my website www.oldtyneside.co.uk. Years ago people could get to Wallsend or Walker from the landing & it was well used by the workers in the shipyards. Hebburn men might have worked across the river & Wallsend people worked on the Hebburn side at places like Reyrolles & not just the ship yards.

The 'Royal Hotel' nicknamed The White Lead due to the white dust from the lead factory across the road landing on it. Today nearly 100 yrs later in 2013 the Hotel has been renovated & given its old nickname 'The White Lead'.
