New Arcade, Newcomen-street Entrance. The Newcomen-street entrance to the new Arcade, which will be officially opened by the Mayor of Greater Newcastle (Alderman G. Jenner)
Last night I was searching Trove for ‘Newcomen Street’ results for a house on upper Newcomen Street. I checked ‘illustrated’ and up came a photo of the opening of the City Arcade (where the Municipal Swimming Baths used to be).
Also showing in the photo is the Myola Cafe, an establishment that until then was unknown to me. The Myola sat next door to the City Arcade, to the north or closer to Scott Street (see photo, above).
Here is a bigger photo:
Here is a 2015 Googlemaps pic of the current site, showing Harbourside Trimmers
More info as I find it…
