Description:A view of the Ironmarket taken from Nelson Place. The building seen on the far right hand side was a private house which was demolished in 1930. The Silverdale Equitable Industrial Co-operative Society purchased the site and built an emporium, which still stood in 2002. This illustrates the change over time from when large numbers of people lived in the centre of Newcastle, to the present day when all available space is used either for retail units, pubs or restaurants.

The Municipal Hall can be seen further up the Ironmarket. This was built, between 1888 and 1890, to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. During its time the Hall contained a Council Chamber, Library, Dance Hall, and School of Art. The Hall was demolished in 1967 and the present Newcastle Library now occupies the site.
