Tyne House 1906

That is what it says on the back of this photograph and Tyne House was at East Loftus; with the shop of Mr C Jones next to it. No I do not remember it, as it is dated 1906 and I am not quite that old. But after visiting today I think the shop is number 1 Tyne Street. Keith Bowers brought us an identical image in black & white which he believed to be from the 1890s. We realised that the two were identical, although the image on site was slightly better in condition.

Image courtesy of Mrs Pauline Ovington, but many thanks to Keith Bowers for the alternative image.
