Odd Tops No. 11
Another in the series of “Odd Tops”, the architectural beauties that are found above shop level.
This picture was taken in King Street, South Shields and is of a beauty parlour, which locals will probably remember was formerly “Mr. Derek’s”.
The great thing about looking up in King Street and Ocean Road is that you can see and imagine how the town centre developed and grew away in a long line from the Market Square. Many of the older buildings have the foundation dates inscribed high above, and it is evident that our town centre grew towards the beach and the North Sea in just a few short years!
