    iSee was a two 
    year project (2005-2007) to digitise non/out of copyright images contained in Gateshead's Local Studies' collection. The project was funded by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Gateshead's photograph collection includes over 10,000 images of the Gateshead Borough from the 1860s onwards. The collection, it's said, forms a unique social and political history of Gateshead, its people and its surroundings.

    Project staff and volunteers digitised and researched over 5000 images for the project. Although the project has officially ended, volunteers have continued to work with the collection, scanning and adding more images each week.
    The Hayward collection specifically about The Felling district was also gathered over many years and now features 
    in the regular history exhibitions staged by

                The Felling Heritage Group
    which is willing to stage exhibitions, on request

    As stated above the iSee Gateshead historic picture collection is now on
  • The website you're now viewing has a lot of photographs of houses, pubs and schools and one major function is so that the local area can be seen by genealogists from around the World. Jon Bratton, the main author of this website, made himself familiar with the internal search facility of the iSee website and was able to answer queries raised. It was the non-findability of the website's content by Google that prompted the development of this website. If you are a genealogist wanting to see where your ancestors lived, and can't find what you're looking for, email to jon@jbratton.com

      Looking North from the front of Number 199.


    The Barn Close flats were the first multi-storey blocks on Tyneside. They were completed in 1956 and consisted of 196 dwellings in four t-shaped blocks with communal roof-top walking areas.

    The flats were built on the site of some of Gateshead's worst slum housing (pictured). Under the Housing Act of 1930 the Council was given much greater legal power to deal with slum housing and whole areas could be demolished. Barn Close was the first area to be tackled after an enquiry in 1932 revealed conditions of extreme squalor (one basement was found to contain 11 people). Between 1932 and 1935 Barn Close and other

Between 1932 and 1935 Barn Close and other slum areas at Pipewellgate, Hillgate, Bridge Street, Church Street and Old Fold were acquired by compulsory purchase order and demolished. This added to the worsening housing shortage, and with a lack of available land on which to build, the solution was to build upwards.

  • The lack of house-building during the First World War had caused a serious shortage of housing across Great Britain. In 1919 the Addison Acts required local authorities to assess housing needs and to built new houses for rent.

    In the 1920s new estates were built at Carr Hill, Bensham, Lobley Hill, Old Fold, Wrekenton and Deckham Hall. All houses were to have a scullery, larder, coal store, bath and indoor w.c. The new estates had wide streets lined with trees and were very different from the cramped terraces people were used to.

    The Council also had to address the poor housing conditions in the town centre. The worst areas were close to the river where overcrowding and risk of disease was at its worst. (Taylor, S. & Lovie, D. 2004)

    Under the Housing Act of 1930, the Council was given much greater legal power to deal with slum housing. The Act meant that whole areas of housing could be demolished and between 1932 and 1935 many of the streets in and around the town centre were acquired by compulsory purchase order and demolished. (Manders, 1973)

    House-building came to a stop during the Second World War and overcrowding in Gatesehead once again became a big problem. After the CLARK S S Women s Patty Tayna Red Mule Leather Red Leather bbf5c3d war the Council set to work building new estates at Highfield and Blue Quarries and later at Beacon Lough and Cedars Green.

    However, by the mid 1950s there was a serious shortage of traditional building materials and during the 1950s and 1960s concrete was used to build modern ‘high rise’ housing. The new building schemes were combined with a vigorous programme of slum clearance and by 1970s rows of terraces in Bensham, the Teams area and Central Gateshead had been demolished.

    it is Gateshead that occupies the foreground.

  • A very large number of the photographs in the Council collection were taken as part of mass slum clearance by the Council after legislation in 1930 empowered them to compulsory purchase sub standard housing. This website will carry some of the hundreds of such photos, for the benefit of genealogists and will direct them to the Gateshead Council website
