Newcastle 50 Years Ago – Amazing B&W Show the Daily Life at North Shields Fish Quay in the 1960s

Laszlo Torday (1890–1975) was a chemical engineer, industrialist and a keen and gifted amateur photographer. He arrived in Tynemouth in January 1940 from Hungary and eventually moved to Jesmond. His photographs, the majority taken in the 1960s and 1970s, reflect his interest in the streets and people of Newcastle.

North Shields was one of his interested places when some of his photographs showed the Fish Quay here in the 1960s.
