Pictures from the past

Pictures from the past is a special display showing Newcastle life in the early twentieth century as lived by the Porter family of King Street.

A picture really is worth a thousand words and the many family snaps, prints and commercial photographs in the Miss Porter's House Museum collection paint a vivd portrait of Newcastle life in the early years of the twentieth century. The special display of 'Pictures from the past' will include examples from courting postcards and holiday snaps, street scenes and local landmarks. Visitors can also help identify several mystery photographs.
