The Old Town Hall

Bell mounted on the side of the old Town Hall in the Market Place, South Shields. Was it used to call people together for important announcements? Perhaps a local historian can supply the answer.

  7. You are unable to see what everyone else is commenting on?
    All of the pictures are links to my account at Photobucket and I have no problem seeing them in I.E. or Firefox, do you have some type of script blocking in your browser?

    This is a shame because you are missing out on quality posts here (ha, ha), can anybody else with a more computer geek type brain help out our friend Neorelix?
