Here's a link to some newly discovered photos from 19th century Newcastle
What is with all the clothing on the street?? Also the second last image looks like someone about to be hanged?
Slightly different set from the same collection here
Enjoyed them, thanks.
The "good old days", are these the Victorian values that several of our governments keep saying they want to get back to ?
Wonderful street shots. The hanging scene was that of a well known rebel who was trying to devise a camera that used light only on a card instead of film. If you look carefully there is one gent in the crowd who is particularly keen to see justice done and who seems to be foreign. Some say that it was a Mr Eastman from the U.S.
I love the rugby shots- so little has changed.
The last time I was in Newcastle little had changed from these pictures
