One Picture is Worth a Thousand Words + Hadrian’s Wall in the West End

Arthur's Hill demolitionThe West Newcastle Picture History Collection (WNPHC), based at West End Library, holds a treasure trove of 19,000 photographs from the 1880’s to current day of the west of Newcastle as far as Throckley.

The collection is managed by a group of volunteers who welcome the public to join them between 10am and 4 pm on a Monday, based at the West End Library. It’s a large collection and is bound to awaken memories of earlier years, as you see shops that may no longer exist, hairstyles and fashions to make you smile and maybe you have some pictures or documents you could add to the collection.

Do you have any photos of Newcastle West End, particularly Arthur’s Hill, Fenham, Spital Tongues and New Mills estate?

A fantastic resource we’ve come across on Facebook of Newcastle’s West End might inspire you and take you down memory lane …
