Requiescat in pace...
Government Office for the North East
1994 - 2011
Atmospheric photo showing the view from what was once our office, towards the majestic, mysterious, River Tyne, taking in part of what remains of Newcastle's mediaeval City Walls, its ancient towers, ditch and ramparts, taken by one of my former colleagues, Graeme Andrew Stickings 2009.
Adjacent to the Walls is the Gate to our Chinatown, on Stowell Street.
~ I have fond memories of pressure and stress, some of which was the very good kind: And working hard with wonderfully bright and intelligent friends and colleagues and their passion for the North East.
I shall remember our belly laughs and occasional hysteria!
Hard work and good times.
