Driftwood 9 54

Edit, December 28th 2012: Okay, so I finally decided to go back and expand this scene, after all. I came to the conclusion that the kitchen scene is really too important to show in just two panels … (More explanations.)

Anyway, the funny building to the right in the first panel is Blacks cinema, which opened in 1909, closed in 1960 and was torn down in 2006 (I think). To the left you can barely see part of the old glass works, which were torn down around the same time. Here is a photo from 1967 and one of the cinema from around 1980. I can’t help but think that post-gentrification Gateshead could have been a much prettier town if they would have renovated all these interesting old buildings instead of just tearing them down. :3
