Photograph Northumberland St. Blyth 090410
Postcard of Northumberland Street, Blyth.  Publisher and date unknown but from clothing, appears to be early 1900's.

Detail of Star & Garter Pub
Some detail from the postcard of the Spring Garden Steam Laundry.  Click on the image and zoom in, to see detail of adverts for  F.J. Smiths (?) Famed Regimental Cigarettes and Marcella Cigars. The building in which this was located no longer seems to exist.

Some detail of the Star and  Garter Hotel.  That building is now the Steamboat pub.
