View along Grey Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, looking down toward the Theatre Royal, April 1958 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/4/976/8).

Tyne & Wear Archives presents a series of images taken by the Newcastle-based photographers Turners Ltd.

The firm had an excellent reputation and was regularly commissioned by local businesses to take photographs of their products and their premises. Turners also sometimes took aerial and street views on their own account and many of those images have survived, giving us a fascinating glimpse of life in the North East of England in the second half of the Twentieth Century.

    Lloyds Bank was among the first property owners to clean their stone facade. Lower down there's another clean premises - possibly the old Bank of England building? No parking meters or significant parking restrictions at that time, but double parking must have hastened the day when controls became much stricter.,
