Newcastle then, and now, mainly.
I think that all of these pictures are of buildings in Newcastle that existed pre-1914, maybe pre-1900, and still exist now, bar maybe the last one, as I'm not sure where that is. The others are Stephenson Monument near Central Station, The Side, Eldon Square, Dog Leap Stairs, Central Station (from the west) and the Central pub in Gateshead.
I'm reading a bit about Victorian Newcastle at the moment but these are images I've taken from the internet. I haven't noted where I found them. Sorry about that. Newcastle Libararies on Flickris good though, as is Amber photography's website (even if you don;t give two shits about the Victorians or Newcastle).
