1980's view of Palmers Engine Works from river. On the skyline from L to R are the high-rise flats of Ellen and Wilkinson Courts, with Lennig offices just in front of them, then the skeletonised roof of the probable Palmers fitting shop, with Christ Church spire seen behind where the skeletonising was just finishing , then the brick yard chimney which was demolished in the late 80's, which helps to date the photo in the 80's. In the foreground a view of the blocked entrance to the graving dock. Note the the glass panels on the roof of the Palmers shop. Photo: Alan Hobbs of Hebburn, courtesy of Neil Coltman.
