The street in the back ground is amazing to see. Spot on! Ted. Is that the back of the church? I'm trying to work out where the houses would be now. One of your old maps, maybe?

Ted like Jade I'm trying to work out the houses in the background which don't seem to be really old and St Paul's looks in pretty good condition compared to the present day. The houses don't seem to fit in with the church.
You would have expected cottages or similar for that era.
Great photo Tedg Smile
It looks as if the photo was taken from the old bridge area & if so, the houses would be somewhere in the direction of the park :confused::confused::confused:
Here's a map showing the church and the houses.Also another pic of the church taken in 1906

The school was St Bede's Boys' School. The houses were demolished in the 1930's when the first Council house estate was built in Jarrow - in the vicinity of Springwell Park.
