The Tyne Bridge, connecting Gateshead with Newcastle, was opened by King George V and Queen Mary in 1928 at a time of great industrial depression. Built by Dorman Long & Co Ltd of Middlesbrough, the bridge is an arch or ‘coathanger’ design similar to the Sydney Harbour Bridge with a span of 531 feet.

The Dorman Long collection also includes technical drawings and plans of the bridge and many progress photos.
