Selected Collection - The Tommy Hewitt Collection - Childhood images

Tommy Hewitt was one of our valued volunteers for several years, until his death in 2010. He was an expert on all things relating to old North Shields in general and Smith's Docks in particular. This group of images of his childhood is our way of remembering him and his contribution to the archive.
