    This detailed map covers the area north of the Tyne and stretches as far as to show Rosehill. Features on this map include Wallsend Cemetery, Football Ground, St Pauls Church, Willington House, both Willinton Quay Station and Howden on Tyne Station and Railway Lines, but most of all, this map is packed with industry, showing the Shipbuilding Works, Cement Works, Wallsend Colliery, Chemical Works and Marine Engineering Works.
