Walker Naval Yard on the river bend opposite Bill Quay. In WW2 my aunt Margaret was a widow living in Walker and at the time the Aircraft Carrier HMS Victorious was being built. A RN Officer was billeted at her house and they eventually fell for each other and got married. He was my Uncle Jim Gardner and was on Victorious when it was involved with the sinking of the German Battleship 'Bismark'.

This land was turned into Allotments and they are still there today in 2020. Us kids had an allotment in 1958-59 where we kept pigeons. The pigeons often sat on Reyrolles roof just over the railway lines.

It is not very clear, but is the Copperworks Reservoir that claimed the lives of at least three children. Two children from over the railway lines in Glen St area drowned early 1900s. In 1955 a boy aged 10 called Colqhoun drowned in it. I have fished for little sticklebacks in it about 1950 and it was very deep with sloping sides. Tharsis had left by then and just left derelict buildings and that unfenced 'Pond'. No health & safety then.

This path was called Whinney Lane. It was named that because of the underlying strata of a hard stone called Whin Stone.

This is a long gone small pond where my friend Barry Cram's dad Davy & two brothers sailed their little home made sailing ship. I was safer than sailing it in the river or the Copperworks 'pond' (reservoir)

Was this Graham's Crossing? Possibly Graham's Cottages here?

This factory was 'White's Marine' on Prince Consort Rd. In the 20s early 30s my mother was a little girl living across the road from the Factory Gate. Times were tough & she told me she sometimes stood outside the gate when the men were finished their shift hoping for any spare 'bait'. The photo shows Prince Consort Rd with Whites offices & Factory in the background on the left.

The Staith House Public House which was right on the waterside. Literally a few yards furthe along was another Pub called the 'Tennant's Arms' obviously named after the Tennant's Chemical Works that started in Hebburn 1860s & only a short walk along the riverside.
