Newcastle upon Tyne in the 1970s: Fascinating Photos Capturing Street Scenes, Landmarks and Everyday Life

Newcastle upon Tyne is the largest city in northern England, situated on the River Tyne’s northern bank. For hundreds of years, Newcastle has been regarded as the regional capital of the North East of England because of its importance, significance, and quality. Only in a few parts of the country does one settlement form a solid focal point for an entire region. The Tyne was Britain’s second most crucial river by 1860. During the Golden Age of Coal, Iron, and Steam, coal mining, railway engineering, and shipbuilding constituted an interdependent network that supported Britain’s prosperity, industrial power, and global leadership.

Newcastle’s economy has historically been reliant on its port. Specifically, its status as one of the world’s largest shipbuilding and repair centers. The arrival of the railways into Newcastle brought with it two of the country’s most delicate railway structures – Newcastle Central Station, widely acknowledged as one of the country’s finest stations, and the High-Level Bridge, the world’s first combined rail and road bridge. Today, the High-Level Bridge, Armstrong’s Swing Bridge, the iconic Tyne Bridge, and the Gateshead Millennium Bridge are all remarkable individually and collectively.

The 1970s were marked by sweeping changes in social, economic, cultural, and political norms. It was a time of transition, and these photos from the 1970s depict what life was like in Newcastle Upon Tyne at the time.

The ladies switched their red uniforms for French Navy on Easter Sunday and the London flight was the first chance to show them off. "They are great." was the general opinion of the girls. "Much smarter and the simple lines are going to suit more girls," said Jean Hepple, fleet stewardess. The new uniform consists of sleeveless pinafore dresses, single breasted coats and jackets and pill box hats. White crepe blouses, with tie neck-lines, complete the uniforms. The hostesses are (left to right) Angela Wakeling, Jean Robertson, Lynda Byers, Maureen Kelly, Helen Dodds, Marie Cahill, Evelyn Dingwall and Jean Hepple.

A view of a range of Eldon Square being demolished, possibly the west range, seen from the rear, with a partial view of the square in the background and showing a cross-section of the interior of the range. Eldon Square had three ranges of terraced houses, built between 1825 and 1831 by Thomas Oliver and John Dobson for Richard Grainger. The north range has five central bays that project and the ground floor is raised above the street level. The east range, still standing, has 33 bays in total, and three storeys with basement and attics, with the five bays on either end slightly projecting, and the west range most likely mirrored this facade. The north and west range were demolished in 1973, and the Eldon Shopping Centre was constructed on the site in 1973.
