Is it Jarrow Library?

Smarty mentioned the 'Slaughter Pit'. There is an amazing poem of that name, dedicated to the men who died in the explosions in 1826 & 1830 and Jobling's jibbeting/other atrocities from owners. It brings a lump to my throat everytime I read it.
There is a pit axe, etc arranged in the ground, and I think it's on North Street?? I remember seeing a picture of this, but cannot remember the location.

The first traffic lights were in Albert Road I think.
