This aerial view of the City Centre includes the Newcastle Breweries site, May 1977 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/4/CN10582S). The image also shows Blandford House, home of Tyne & Wear Archives.

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.

    Blimey there's so much going on in this one! Probaby the best angle I've seen on Newcastle City - with some added Westerly parts too. Thanks for sharing.

    Great view! 1977, the year Jimmy Carter spoke Geordie and the Queen opened Eldon Square. Is that a Triumph Bonneville Jubilee in Ken's window on Westgate Hill? Thanks
