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?

Go north from the coach station (The buses face south on their stands) and you will come to a busy cross roads. Cross over and turn right. There is a bus stop right in front of you. Take a Number 38 to Jesmond Road.

Enjoy your stay.

SO enjoyed your article on Henry (Harry) Clasper. He was my maternal great great grandfather. From what I understand, his son Henry also became a sculler, and also had something to do with the sliding seat. All the best!

I was born in Byker before the war and was evacuated to Cumberland(living at that time in Beverley Terrace,Walker)
Moving back late 1940 we lived in Denton Burn.I attended Pendower school from there I got a scholarship to Rutherford College Boys School-Bath Lane.I got to know and love wartime Newcastle and still do! Even though I left many years ago (still have family there) I miss the place. Later we lived in Park Road and I remember going to a Christmas Pantomine with a special Tram to the Grand Byker-not many have been on a special Tram(I don't know how they did it).Fortunately I have a very good memory-so enjoy all your pictures.

@Rob Urwin. Thanks for that additional information. I will correct the item. Some of the Jimmy Forsyth items are undated so I suppose someone must have guessed.

Thanks again for you visit and kind comment.

really enjoyed looking at the pages on Elswick after putting "Hawes Street"
into Google, however...... the site shows two views of Hawes Street from its junction with Scotswood Road - one modern and one supposedly 1963. My family was one of those moved from Hawes Street as part of the "Slum Clearance" programme when I was 6. I can remember playing on the site of the houses at the bottom of the street which had already been demolished before we were moved. Given that I was born in 1949 I'd suggest that photo was early 1955 at the latest....
