South Tyneside Historic Images Online

Enter here for a fascinating insight into the heritage of South Tyneside, a small but vibrant area known to the Venerable Bede, the Romans, the Vikings and countless ancestors who came to the area during the industrial revolution.   The fishing, saltpanning, glassmaking, mining and maritime industries have all but gone, but images remain to tell their stories, and provide a journey into life along the River Tyne:  at Hebburn, Jarrow and South Shields; the coastal area of South Shields and Whitburn; and inland to Cleadon Village, the Boldons: East, West and Boldon Colliery.
