Aerial view of Middle Docks & Engineering Company Ltd, South Shields, June 1976 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/4/CN10102C).

Tyne & Wear Archives is proud to present a series of aerial photographs of South Tyneside. These images were captured by the Newcastle-based photographic firm Turners Ltd.

Many of the images reflect the district's rich industrial heritage, showing businesses and places that no longer exist. We would be delighted if you could help us to tag these by adding the names of streets and buildings that you recognise.

Old photographs can often stimulate distant memories and we would also love to hear any reminiscences that these images inspire

    Looks like one of the Leander frigates in dry dock.

    Pretty sure that is the Leander Class Frigate HMS Euryalus in dry dock. She did a short refit on the Tyne and was also the adopted ship of South Shields.
