Aerial view looking towards Newcastle upon Tyne City Centre from Jesmond, June 1978 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/4/CN11182F). In the foreground you can see Jesmond Metro Station under construction.

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.

    So much to the city that I've never seen. . Interesting to see the route to Haymarket that the Metro takes - a large 'S' bend for sure.

    Such a shame that so much of historic Jesmond was destroyed by the Central Motorway (east) construction. Blights the whole area as this shot shows so well.
