    Which Street?

    Name it now?

    Council Chambers


1.1  Trainspotters at Washington Station.  Can you name the two terraces, near the long footbridge, on the right horizon?

1.2  Unidentified street.  Because of the long, flat pit heap, I considered Single Row, Quarry Row and Railway Terrace.

1.3  This is the original name of a very well known street in Washington.  What's its name now, and where's this sign?

1.4  Good quality picture of Washington Council Chambers, showing some fashions of the day.  No jeans and trainers!

1.5  Entrance to Royal Air Force Usworth - Usworth Aerodrome - opposite to the Three Horse Shoes public house.
