This gallery is a journey to a unique time in Newcastle’s story.
Most of the paintings and many of the structures that hosted them have faded into the past, lost in the turmoil of rejuvenation.
Photographed during the early part of this century, our collection covers the final stages of Newcastle’s decaying CBD, a decline brought about by the growth of suburban shopping complexes and the loss of manufacturing in a previous century.
