  1. Thank you, this is a wonderfully rare view into a world long gone.

    Turning left at the junction ahead you’re soon at Linthorpe Road where the Swatters Carr (then the Empire Hotel) now is. The buildings on the left still survive except for the Grand Opera House in the background (later the Gaumont Cinema) which was demolished 1971.
