Aerial view of Newcastle upon Tyne, showing the Swan House roundabout and surrounding area, including Grey's Monument, Grey Street and Pilgrim Street, May 1977 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/4/CN10582D).

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.

    Is that Manors Station at the bottom right of the photo? There's even less of it now if I remember right.

    Its hard to believe how big a part of the transport scene it was, I think part of it was used for a couple of scenes in 'Get Carter' . I need to get up to Newcastle again, I haven't visited for a while.
