Back to photostream


a panorama of Goninans Foundry at Wickham (foreground) with Newcastle in the background. (higher resolution version)


The panorama is 3 photos by Ralph Snowball, taken from the tower at the Wickham Fire Station in Albert Street. The road through the foreground centre of the image is Foundry Street, with Greenway Street in front of the Goninans buildings.


The glass plate negatives for the centre and right photos are in the University of Newcastle archive.

(there are 4 slightly different versions of this image)



The left image is scanned from p59 of "With Camera Horse and Wagonette", a compilation of Snowball photos by Bert Lovett and Norm Barney. I don't know where the negative is.


The photo on page 58, of Albert Street Wickham, was also take in 1906, from the same vantage point, but may not be part of this panorama - if it is there is one photo missing
