Aerial view of Newcastle upon Tyne, looking west across the City Centre, May 1977 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/4/CN10582L).
Tyne & Wear Archives presents a series of colour aerial photographs of Newcastle upon Tyne. These images were captured by the Newcastle-based photographic firm Turners Ltd during the mid to late 1970s.
At first glance, some of these images give the impression that the Newcastle landscape hasn't changed much in 40 years. Look more closely, though, and some of the differences between then and now will reveal themselves - see how many you can spot.

We've lost a lot since these were taken - Manors Station should have remained imho. It's good though that we're now losing some of the awful concrete close to Swan House. Mind you, it could have been far worse - I've seen the original plans!
