Many pubs of the Ouseburn and surrounding areas (this collection currently including Shieldfield) have disappeared over the years, some demolished and others repurposed. Of course there are those that remain and continue to thrive, The Cumberland, The Cluny, The Ship and The Tyne form the backbone of one of the best pub crawls to be found in the city.
As I find more older pictures I will be adding to this collection.
This former flax mill designed by John Dobson and completed in 1848 operated for just 12 years before being turned into a steam powered flour mill. It became a bottling plant and warehouse for Cluny Whisky and retained that name. The cart pictured was pulled up outside the old Ouseburn Lead Works, since demolished that stood in the grounds of what is now Ouseburn Farm.
Shield Street, Franklin Street which the pub sat on the corner of no longer exists
Later to be called Fletchers it suffered an arson attack in 1997. The street it was on has since been demolished and flats now occupy the land. The white building in the middle ground was The Globe pub until recent years, but that too has closed and been converted into flats
