The following images are the reproduced engravings of J.W. Carmichael (1800 – 1868) which depict views of places along the River Tyne from Bardon Mill to Tynemouth. They were re-published in the 1969 book “Pictures of Tyneside” (which I found in a second hand book shop for a fiver!). The original copper plates from the first edition in 1830 were found in 1966 from which these prints were taken. They beautifully depict everyday life at various location along the Tyne. With the advent of photography this wonderful art form went into decline.
