In ruins (of local interest only, if that)
These are pictures of Newcastle in the late 19th century and, top, Tynemouth in the 20th century. The buildings (in Tynemouth, Pilgrim Street, Sangate and Gateshead Quayside) have mostly been knocked down or, in the case of Tynemouth, burned down. The elephants, on Grey Steet, no longer exist, but Grey Street does. Not that there aren't a lot of good buildings in Newcastle still. That's the next post.
