Aerial view of Newcastle upon Tyne, showing the new Eldon Square shopping centre nearing completion, January 1976 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/4/CN8897H).

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.
