Park Avenue mid 1960s

What we know about this image :

Taken by the late Doris Wilson in the mid 1960s, the view is along Park Avenue towards Elwick Road with Ward Jackson Park on the right. The road is its traditional red colour which was supposedly  agreed in the 1880s when the land was sold by Mr Wooler. Park Avenue, parts of Elwick Road near the park and the nearby Parade had red coloured tarmac.

Today that appears to have been forgotten and the road surface are black.

Donor : family of late Doris Wilson
