John Fox's Old Photos Of Newcastle

A friend of mine, John Fox, found some negatives amongst a relatives collection taken in Newcastle city centre in 1972 and 1973. John scanned the negatives and kindly allowed me to use the photos on this website. I'm afraid I don't know a whole lot about the photos but i can spot where most of them were taken.

This set of photos just show how much of the old "Toon" have been pulled down to make room for student flats. Look at all of the beautiful buildings that have been lost and replaced by square boxes, never to be replicated again!.

I could weep for what has been done to the best looking city in the UK and probably the world!.
