This postcard of Stockton High Street shows a very interesting range of architectural styles, the bay windows and dormers of the Jacobean period, the three storey, red roofed Georgian, the stone and red brick Victorian and the modern 1920s Art Deco.
I find it difficult to believe that nearly all of this was to disappear
within a decade.

Thousands of people gathered on Stockton High Street to watch a military procession take place during the celebration of the Queens Silver Jubilee, July 1977.
I have some photographs taken of my family with Stockton as a backdrop. I believe they were taken either late 1962 or possibly early 1963 as I was the baby in arms and I was born November 1961. The others are my parents and my older sister. My name then was Julie Marshall and my sister was Christine Marshall.

This photograph shows the stretch of Stockton High Street from Castlegate to Finkle Street, the buildings are empty and awaiting the bulldozers.The Georgian town houses from Castlegate northwards have had their ground floors converted to shops, very similar to those seen in Yarm to this day, the Greek Neo-Classical frontage of Doggarts comes next, then more town houses, all of this was swept away and replaced by the Castlegate Centre.
I noticed the building behind Doggarts facade has a hole in the roof and its design is more like an aircraft hanger than a shop. The small house along Castlegate looks to be more Victorian as were a lot of the old buildings and yards alongside the quayside.
