A photograph showing the rear of numbers 48 and 50 Bridge Road, Stockton c1984.
Can anyone identify the whereabouts of the buildings in this photograph?
I passed this site about six weeks ago prior to the demolition of the building that stood to one end of it, I was hoping to be able to return and take some photo’s of it but I was too late. I believe from a sign that was attached to the building its last use was possibly as an upholsterers workshop, hopefully one of our learned site contributors will be able to let us know a little more of its history.

1, 3, 4 Wells cottages in Egglescliffe, taken 25 October 1977.
The ‘Angel Room’ which was part of the Portrack Grange cottages is believed to have been a Georgian tavern used by sea captains. The cottages stood on the bend of the River Tees before cuts were made to straighten the river. The plaster-work seen in the photographs is dated early to mid-18th century. The buildings were possibly some of the first brick buildings in Stockton (c1660s) and were apparently demolished c1959.

I think this might be all that is left of Stockton Workhouse and School. It was taken in Union Street East, just off Portrack Lane. I also think St James Church was situated just across the road. Could anyone confirm this?

Although this photograph was probably taken in the mid-eighties, I don’t remember it being very different from when I used to commute to the various Dorman Long sites around South Bank, Cleveland Works and Warrenby, although at that tine Warrenby was run by BISRA (British Iron and Steel Research Association). What was the Embassy Club and was there any special reason for the pedestrian overbridge?
