    Fine Fare / 'F' Pit

1.1  A tranquil scene looking upstream along the River Wear - undisturbed by a coal train crossing the Victoria Bridge.

1.3  A complimentary ticket to the British Empire Exhibition in London 1924, courtesy of ... which Washington company?

1.4  Blackham Hill Hauler House on The Bowes Railway.  Smashing picture, shame to have to degrade it for the Web.

1.5  The Fine Fare warehouse on Parsons Estate, with Washington 'F' Pit in the background.  Photo from Adrian Lupton.
