Littlehaven Beach, South Shields

Littlehaven Beach

We have two beaches in South Shields, when I was a kid we always knew them as the little beach and the big beach. Littlehaven is the little beach, seen here late at night illuminated only by the streetlamps of Harbour Drive and the dancing lights from the Dunes ten pin bowling hall at the fairground. There’s also a little help from the moon on the right hand side.

Camera; Pentax K100D, lens 27mm., 30 seconds, f22, iso 200

  8. Hi Curly…thanks for the link for creating links….going to try it here.

    In the meantime – sure, there’s post-war stuff here heritage classified….but the entrance to the station itself (not sure about the sign would be early 20th C at latest – will try to do a bit more research!

  9. Here ya go, curly!

    Here’s a bit (.pdf) from the heritage conservation study:

    St James Station is of State Significant because it was, with Museum Station, one of the first underground stations inAustralia to demonstrate the adaptation of the British tube style station to the Australian situation.

    It is largely in original
    condition. The structures form an integral part of the historic fabric of Sydney. The structures are well built, proportioned
    and detailed and represent the culmination of many years of political activity to have a city railway system in place. St
    James retains most of its original fabric and character. Some fixtures are rare such as an intact early c1938 neon sign
    “Chateau Tanunda” brandy,
    in the northernmost Elizabeth Street Entrance.

    Work on the railway commenced in 1916…Fundraising problems forced construction to cease in 1918. From 1917 to 1922
    Bradfield maintained a publicity campaign to rally support for his scheme. Excavation work for Museum and St James
    Stations began in 1922. .. After several years of construction the first underground electric railway was
    opened on 20 December 1926 when the new line sections of Central Station, Museum and St James Stations were
    connected by trains.

  14. Hello, I am a student of high school in Newcastle Upon Tyne. And I was wondering if I could use this image for my ICT project of Graphics? It would really help me in this project if I could use it. Thank you.
