Description:A view of Nelson Place taken from Queen's Gardens. The Gardens, seen here in the foreground, were laid out in 1897 on land that had been bought by public subscription, in order to celebrate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee.

Over in Nelson Place, the Plaza Cinema can be seen in between King Street and Brunswick Street. The building began life in 1788 as the Royal Theatre and was converted into a cinema in 1910. It was originally known as the Newcastle Cinema Theatre, but became the Plaza in 1930. To the right can be seen the swimming baths. The baths were built in 1906 to commemorate the coronation of King Edward VII. They have been improved on a number of occassions and were known as the Jubilee swimming baths in 2002.
