Here are a few pics of the wholesale demolition (and destruction of a community) of this densely populated area in the early 1980s, on a trumpt up reason ..subsidence. The reason the photos look a bit weird is because a wide angle lens, probably 28mm or wider, plus a red filter and fast film have been used. I haven't a clue about where the streets shown were!

A few houses and bits of this and that. Nothing that has benn constructed in the town has ever been an improvement. (in my opinion)

I lived on the corner of Bertram Street and John Williamson Street and I'm sure our block was demolished in late 1972, we were already well established in a new council house while Sunderland were making their run up to the '73 cup final.

This is 227 - 233 John Williamson Street shortly after the people moved out. We lived upstairs at 231and moved out in 1970.
