Pictures of Newcastle upon Tyne old and new as featured in the books of Geoff Phillips

Scotswood Road

The modern picture shows the Centre for Life under construction.

The 1842 Market Keeper's house (with the clock tower) was designed by John Dobson. It has been refurbished and now forms the centre-piece of the new Times Square.

The tall spire, visible in both photographs, belongs to St Mary's Roman Catholic cathedral.

In the older picture, the sheep and pig market can be seen between the tram and the King's Head pub on the left.
