Hi Tim, been reading your site for years now, just wondered if you were going to update it with new pictures, it's been a few years? Thanks!

Webmaster's reply : Thanks for your kind comment. You are right, it has been a while. The rise of social media made my efforts a bit redundant, I suppose. Also I had reached the limit of storage with my present host server. Good news, I have more storage now and was contemplating doing some more "Newcastle Today" features.

Retired gay American Anglophile living my retirement in Costa Rica. I am 72 and although I have watched more British TV then USA, I have never been to Britain. I always wanted to be the next Rudolph Able but I think I missed that opportunity when it was offered while I was living in Tokyo, Japan 1965--1967.

I am a dog person but for some reason cats always love me. Are they maybe trying to recruit me? Regards, Tom

I was searching to find out when my house was built, guessing it must be 1800s, I googled "when was eslington terrace jesmond "built"" and your website was the bottom link on the first page... Scrolling through I found your picture of a house on Eslington Terrace that you lived in for a short time in the 70s. By what I can only imagine is pure chance that picture happens to be of my house, well at least I live in the bottom flat. Was this your house? All the furniture looks very old. I've narrowed it down to having been built between 1870 and 1894 by looking at pictures of old maps

Webmaster's reply : I had the impression that the terrace was built in the 1890s. I rented a flat on the first floor. At the time it was owned by an old gent from Durham with a passion for vintage cars. I have been racking my brains to remember his name, with no success. I am sure he will have died by now. Quite a handy location. I am not responsible for the furniture, sorry.

Regards, Tim.

The old Jimmy Forsyth photo of the Holy Jesus Hospital - could you let me know where you got this from as I want to use it in an article I am writing on the history of the General Soup Kitchen I would also like a good quality digital copy. I see you have credited it to Jimmy Forsyth - the Tyne and Wear Archives have some of his work. Thanks

Webmaster's reply : Thanks for your kind message. You are right about the Tyne and Wear Archive beeing keepers of Jimmy Forsyth's pictures. It is located at the Discovery Museum, Blandford Square, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 4JA. Tel: 0191 232 6789

Regards, Tim.

What a brilliant site Tim, I love it, there is so much to see and read. You should be congratulated on both the quantity and quality of photo's and narrative. I found it very interesting and informative - even though I think I've only scratched the surface. Must be a full time job!

Excellent website. The old house in the Old Convent page now has a fast food place in its ground floor. Do you know why it was preserved while the other buildings around it were felled?
