"Tyne Tees Shipping" The Quayside Tip by steventilly

The Quayside, Newcastle upon Tyne: 7 reviews and 6 photos

  Destination Board, Newcastle
by steventilly

Favorite thing: This is one of Susan's favourite features on the Quayside at Newcastle. It is an original sign for the Tyne Tees Shipping Company showing the destinations that they covered. In the 1920's my Grandmother sailed from here to London to 'go into service' - that is, to be a servant girl in a wealthy household.
