39. Post-marked 'August 8th 1910' this view is the reverse of the previous card and shows the southerly aspect of London Road. Traffic pro blems must have been minimal, since there seem to be no rules of the road being observed by the young cyclists!

40. London Road about 1929 on the approach to the Old Union Hospital better known today as the 'City General'. The now disused and filled in Lower Cana1 ran on the other side of the wall to the extreme right of the view.

41. An unusual corner of Stubbs Wa1ks in 1908. It hardly does justice to the gardens at all because this is a view of one of the exits! Interestingly though, it does show the site the bed the Upper Canal took from Marsh Parade (in the distance) to its terminus and basin at the opposite end of the Wa1ks.

42. Stubbs Walks with Saint Paul's Church in the distance, taken about 1930. This snapshot has captured the Crimean cannon and Wor1d War I tank which kept each other company until 1940 when the latter was removed for scrap as part of the war effort.

43. Vessey Terrace off London Road towards Stubbs Walks.

44. Stubbs Gate with London Road in the middle distance. This photograph was taken in 1910.

45. A dreary part of early nineteenth century Newcastle, euphemistically known as the 'Cherry Orchard' which survived along with other unhealthy parts of the borough for far too long. Situated close to the Ebenezer Chapel, it consisted of rows of cramped workers cottages. Happily the area has now been turned into a car park. The picture dates from about 1928.

46. Thistleberry House, one time home of the Mayer family where Joseph Mayer, the antiquarian collector and philanthropist, was bom. The house has recently been replaced by the 'Thistleberry' public house at the Higherland on Keele Road (1896).

47. Deseending into Queen Street from the Brampton which remains a highly prized dormitory area consisting of fine Georgian and Victorian town houses and Villas, Queen Street leads into Nelson Place. 6-8 Queen Street, now known as 'Mayer House', was owned by the Mayer family previously mentioned and Thomas Mayer Senior and his son worked fine1essly to secure the granting of the charter of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in 1844. The veterinary surgery below 6-8 Queen Street on the 1eft of the photograph was probab1y the first to be set up in Great Britain.

48. This is another extremely rare card of the late 1920's. It is difficult to imagine why the Higherland was selected as a subject since the area has litt1e of merit to offer nor has it any saving graces whatsoever - except perhaps its people.
