The Tyne & Wear Archives and Museums joins the Commons on Flickr today with photographs documenting life in Tyne & Wear, a county in North East England. Their account provides a fascinating range of photographs, from the construction of the RMS MAURETANIA on Tyneside in the early 1900s, through to aerial views of the county…
…behind the scenes at Wright’s biscuit factory
…and a whole set dedicated to criminals of 1871-1873.
The Commons exists to help reveal the hidden treasures in the world’s public photography archives and to show how your input and knowledge can help make these collections even richer. You’re invited to contribute by annotating the photographs you discover here, either by adding tags or leaving comments.
