1.2 This isn't a brilliant photograph but it's in colour and it shows the Ritz Facade after the original was blown down!
1.3 Inside Usworth Colliery Miners' Welfare Hall on VE Day in 1945 - a Tea Party for very young, local children.
1.4 The original, open to all weathers Bus Station at The Galleries - shows the original steps leading to Woolco etc.

2. ARTICLES, SELECTIONS, MAPS ETC.
2.1 Two paintings / postcards added to Postcard Collection. 'Lambton Colliery', looks like a bit of a misnomer!
