Southwick Shipyard of Austin & Pickersgill Ltd
Description: Aerial view of the Southwick shipyard of Austin & Pickersgill, Sunderland looking down the River Wear, May 1965 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/36078A). This set of aerial images is intended as a short historical tour of the River Wear from the Piers to Pallion. It gives us an impression of what the River looked like during the middle years of the Twentieth Century, when it was a hive of industrial activity. Sunderland had an international reputation for shipbuilding and this is well represented in this set with images of its famous shipyards such as Austin & Pickersgill, J.L. Thompson & Sons and Sir James Laing & Sons. The River Wear was also home to a thriving marine engineering industry, reflected here by images of the engine works of William Doxford & Sons and George Clark. Other industries are also featured such as glassmaking and of course the key industry of coal mining. Mining is represented by images of Wearmouth Colliery and the riverside coal staithes, which were vital to the coal trade. These images reflect how much the River Wear has changed over the past 50 years, with the disappearance of traditional heavy industries. Those businesses may have gone but Sunderland can be proud of its industrial heritage and the men and women who worked on Wearside and helped to shape the City we know today.

Valentine Tank ready for delivery
Description: View of a 6-pdr. Valentine Tank on a truck ready for delivery, inside the Tank Shop, Elswick Works, Newcastle upon tyne, 21 September 1942 (TWAM ref. DX1529/1). ‘Workshop of the World’ is a phrase often used to describe Britain’s manufacturing dominance during the Nineteenth Century. It’s also a very apt description for the Elswick Works and Scotswood Works of Vickers Armstrong and its predecessor companies. These great factories, situated in Newcastle along the banks of the River Tyne, employed hundreds of thousands of men and women and built a huge variety of products for customers around the globe. The Elswick Works was established by William George Armstrong (later Lord Armstrong) in 1847 to manufacture hydraulic cranes. From these relatively humble beginnings the company diversified into many fields including shipbuilding, armaments and locomotives. By 1953 the Elswick Works covered 70 acres and extended over a mile along the River Tyne. This set of images, mostly taken from our Vickers Armstrong collection, includes fascinating views of the factories at Elswick and Scotswood, the products they produced and the people that worked there. By preserving these archives we can ensure that their legacy lives on. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons.

Shervick Tractors at the Elswick Works
Description: View of Shervick Tractors inside 136 Shop, Elswick Works, Newcastle upon Tyne, April 1948 (TWAM ref. 1027/269). These tractors were manufactured by Vickers after the Second World War, using Sherman tanks, which had become surplus to military requirements. ‘Workshop of the World’ is a phrase often used to describe Britain’s manufacturing dominance during the Nineteenth Century.

Description: View of Elswick Shipyard, 1885 (TWAM ref. 696/6). This appears to show the Austrian cruiser ‘Panther’ ready for launch.

Wartime medical equipment at the Elswick Works
Description: View of Dr Clarkson and a colleague, wearing wartime medical equipment at the Elswick Works, Newcastle upon Tyne, 25 November 1940 (TWAM ref. 1027/neg15299). Dr Clarkson is ‘armed’ with a wartime medical belt, holding a syringe and medical supplies.

R.I.C. and military leaving Limerick
Description: R.I.C. military and armoured car leaving Limerick on a scouting expedition So many maps but no definitive location as of yet - can you help? Thanks to Dr O Mac for identifying the vehicles as, two Crossley Tenders, One c1915 DAIMLER 30HP Y-TYPE 3-TON LORRY and one Austin Armoured car. Interesting times indeed as can be seen from the following contribution from Carol Maddock "Any Irishman who joins the service of the enemy in the R.I.C. at the present time must be regarded and dealt with as the worst type of traitor. We have no desire to be harsh to those who in older and more peaceful time joined through ignorance, not understanding what they did, and who, in these days, have shown no special malevolence in the work they are compelled to do against the Irish Republic; but there is no excuse for the Irishman who dons the uniform of the enemy for active service against his countrymen at the present time."

Charles Nixon, bookmaker's clerk, arrested for false pretences
Description: Name: Charles Nixon Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 20 December 1907 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-119-Charles Nixon The Shields Daily News for 20 December 1907 reports: "CHARGE AGAINST A BOOKMAKER'S CLERK AT NORTH SHIELDS. At North Shields Police Court today, Charles Nixon (30), bookmaker's clerk, South Shields, was charged with attempting to obtain 4s by false pretences from a shopkeeper on Thursday. The prosecutor stated that the accused told him that he had been fined £10 and wanted to get his money back. He asked witness for 4s to put on a horse which had won a race that day and stated that he was working for a big firm of bookmakers and would send the money up, as though it had been put on before the race. The winnings would be £50, which he offered to divide with witness. He, however, declined to have anything to do with him. The accused said he did not see how he could be guilty of false pretences in simply asking for money to put on a horse. He was committed for 7 days".

For an image of her brother Charles Marr see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/16567211557/in/album-72157.... The Shields Daily News for 24 January 1907 reports: "THEFT OF DOOR MATS. MOTHER AND DAUGHTERS SENT TO PRISON. At North Shields Police Court today Mary Ellen Marr (21), Alice Maud Marr (17), sisters, and Mary Ann Marr (44), their mother, were charged with having stolen an indiarubber door mat, valued at £1 4s, the property of Joseph Ostens, from the doorway of his house, 34 Grosvenor Place, on the 17th inst., or with having received the same, well knowing it to have been stolen. They were further charged with having stolen a similar mat, valued at £1 3s, from the doorway of No. 32 Grosvenor Place, on the 17th inst., the property of John R Sutherland. There was a third charge against Mary Ellen and Alice Maud of having stolen on the 21st ult., from the porch of Percy Park House, Grand Parade, Tynemouth, an indiarubber mat, valued at £1 10s, the property of Mr A. O. Carr, JP. In the first case, Detective Sergeant Hall said that on the 18th inst. he arrested the accused at their residence in Church Way. He found the mat produced cut to pieces in the kitchen. Afterwards it was identified by the prosecutor as his property. In the other cases, evidence was given to the effect that the two other mats had been similarly treated, and that one of them had been disposed of at a marine store dealer's for 3s 6d. Previous convictions against the accused were put in by the Chief Constable (Mr J. H. Huish) and the magistrates committed the mother to prison for 14 days on each of the two charges preferred against her and sent the daughters to gaol for 14 days on each of the three charges preferred against them." Alice Marr was also involved in an earlier case. The Shields Daily News for 6 June 1906 reports: "THEFT OF A SAILOR'S BAG AT NORTH SHIELDS. At North Shields Police Court today Charles Marr, Mary Ann Marr, Mary Ellen Marr and Chas. Marr were charged with being concerned together in stealing a sailor's bag of clothing etc, valued at £2, the property of John Partis Gibson, a seaman. Supt. Jamieson of the BTP prosecuted. The prosecutor said that on the 7th May he joined the s.s. Camelia, which was then lying at the Commissioners’ Staithes. He was proceeding to the docks with his bag and when passing the North Shields Railway Station the defendant Chas. Marr came up to him and offered to carry his bag for 1d. He said he would give him 3d if he carried it to the docks and he agreed to do so. He gave him the bag and told him he was going to make a purchase. On reaching his vessel he failed to see the boy and gave information to the police. He went to sea the same day and had just returned. Two pawnbrokers’ assistants spoke to receiving a portion of the stolen clothing from two of the female defendants. Sub-Inspector Leitch said that on the 8th May, from information received, he made enquiries and proceeded to the North Shields Railway Station, where he found the boy Marr and questioned him. He told witness he took the bag home, being unable to find the man who had engaged him at the dock. He went to the house occupied by the defendants and spoke to Mrs Marr with regard to the bag. She told him it was in the cupboard. He took possession of it and found that it contained only a small portion of the stolen clothing. He mentioned this circumstance to her and she said it was just the same as it was when it was brought in the previous day and that it had not been touched. He searched the house and found a portion of the property and he recovered the remainder from the pawnbrokers. He added that the boy told the truth at once and had given him every assistance in recovering the property, while the mother had given him a great deal of trouble. Formally charged, the mother, Mary Ann Marr, said it would not have happened had it not been for need. Charles, who made his 13th appearance, was given the option of a fine, he having assisted the police, and he was mulcted in 1s without costs. Marry Ann Marr, whom the magistrates considered was the chief instigator in the theft, was committed to prison for 14 days, while Mary Ellen Marr was sentenced to 7 days imprisonment. Because of her youth, Alice Marr was discharged." These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 in the collection of Tyne & Wear Archives (TWA ref DX1388/1). This set contains mugshots of boys and girls under the age of 21. This reflects the fact that until 1970 that was the legal age of majority in the UK.

The Shields Daily Gazette reported on an earlier case involving Marr on 1 October 1904: "At North Shields Charles Marr (12), residing at 24 Camden Street, was charged with stealing on the 30th Sept. from a timber yard at the Edward Albert Dock, a quantity of timber valued at 3s, the property of Messrs Pyman and Bell. It appeared from the evidence that the prisoner, along with two small boys, had taken a barrow from a shop door and gone to the Albert Edward Dock and stolen the wood, taking it round on the barrow and selling it ... Mr Priestman School Board Inspector said that he had had the boy under him before, and he thought he had a weak intellect. he had been examined by Dr Martin but had not had his report yet". The Shields Daily News for 1 September 1905 reports: "Charles Marr (14), 24 Camden Street, Alexander Stephenson (14), 6 Middle Street and Joseph Stein (9), 10 North Street, Milburn Place, were remanded until Monday morning for being found begging from foot passengers on the Grand Parade at 4.30 yesterday afternoon". These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 in the collection of Tyne & Wear Archives (TWA ref DX1388/1). This set contains mugshots of boys and girls under the age of 21. This reflects the fact that until 1970 that was the legal age of majority in the UK.

Hogan photographs of Generals with one unknown
Description: URGENT REQUEST from our researchers in the Library - IDENTIFY the Generals in this Photograph We are fairly confident that the identification, left to right, goes: Eoin O’Duffy, Unknown, Michael Brennan, Fionán Lynch, WRE Murphy, and it’s the Unknown we’d like to track down. There was a lot of interest in this photo, with lots of comments, corrections and questions. In the heel of the hunt the combined wisdom of the NLI flickr community suggests that in all probability the unknown is: BARRA O'BRIAIN His image is not very well represented on the net. The suggestion is that you have a look at the non digitised photo - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000604381 and let us know your views at that point. Photographer: W. D. Hogan Collection: Hogan-Wilson Collection , Date: Circa 1922 NLI Ref.: HOG128 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Rolls Royce Cylinders at the Elswick Works
Description: Rolls Royce Cylinders in 24 Shop, Elswick Works, Newcastle upon Tyne, 16 March 1939 (TWAM ref. 1027/5178). ‘Workshop of the World’ is a phrase often used to describe Britain’s manufacturing dominance during the Nineteenth Century. It’s also a very apt description for the Elswick Works and Scotswood Works of Vickers Armstrong and its predecessor companies. These great factories, situated in Newcastle along the banks of the River Tyne, employed hundreds of thousands of men and women and built a huge variety of products for customers around the globe. The Elswick Works was established by William George Armstrong (later Lord Armstrong) in 1847 to manufacture hydraulic cranes. From these relatively humble beginnings the company diversified into many fields including shipbuilding, armaments and locomotives. By 1953 the Elswick Works covered 70 acres and extended over a mile along the River Tyne. This set of images, mostly taken from our Vickers Armstrong collection, includes fascinating views of the factories at Elswick and Scotswood, the products they produced and the people that worked there. By preserving these archives we can ensure that their legacy lives on. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons.

Peter Wallace, arrested for stealing meat
Description: Name: Peter Wallace Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 13 April 1908 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-125-Peter Wallace The Shields Daily News for 13 April 1908 reports: "THEFT OF MEAT AT NORTH SHIELDS. At North Shields Police Court today, before Ald. J.P. SPencer and Mr Stephen L. Robson, Peter Wallace (33), labourer, Stott's lodging house, was charged with having stolen a piece of meat, value 1s 6d, the property of Edward James Walton, butcher, No.4 New Row, on Saturday. The prosecutor stated that on Saturday night, from what he was told by a girl named Scott, he went outside his shop and saw the prisoner, who had a piece of meat concealed underneath his coat. He asked him why he had taken it and he replied that he was prepared to pay for it. He gave information to the police. Mary Ann Scott said she saw the accused take the meat and informed Mr Walton. An officer deposed to arresting the prisoner in a public house in Middle Street. Accused said he was drunk at the time and did not know what he was doing. In reply to the Chairman, the prisoner said he was a single man and that he was not out of employment. He was very sorry for what he had done. The Chairman said it seemed hat the accused was not a confirmed thief but he had committed theft and would have to be punished. He would be fined 10s, including costs."

Frank Bourke, brass founder, arrested for breaking and entering and stealing food
Description: Name: Frank Bourke Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 9 August 1907 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-111-Frank Burke A newspaper report of the case has been found although it contains two different spellings of the prisoner's name, making it unclear which is the right one. The Shields Daily News for 15 August 1907 reports: "BREAKING INTO A CABIN ON THE LONG SANDS. At North Shields Police Court today, Michael Macauley (19), labourer, Sunderland, and Francis Burke (21), brass founder, belonging to Cornwall, were charged with breaking and entering a stall on the Long Sands and stealing a quantity of biscuits and toffee and two glasses, the property of Mr A. Stephenson. PC King stated that on Thursday last at 7am, he was examining the cabins on the sands. There was an opening in the deals of Mr Stephenson's cabin and Burke was looking out of it. He told witness that he was watching the bathers. Burke gave his address and witness was satisfied that it was correct and allowed him to come out of the cabin, and saw Macauley in a corner with two boxes of biscuits, a bottle of toffee and two bottles of lemonade with the stoppers drawn. The window of theinner cabin, in which the goods were stocked, was broken. Macauley said "I was only going to finish the biscuits." He took him into custody and later arrested Bourke, who in reply to the charge said "That is quite right." Mr G.R. Duncan, who defended Burke, said he was a lad who had hitherto borne an excellent character, but had fallen out of employment, and getting into Macauley's company, he yielded to temptation at a time when he was very hungry. The Chief Constable has kindly promised to assist him to go to sea. Burke was bound over in the sum of £5 for six months and Macauley was remanded for a day to enable the police to make further enquiries concerning him."
