Photographs of Tyneside (in particular of the Tyne and the Quayside), Northumberland and elsewhere, taken between 1948 and 1956.
Coming from Northern Ireland, Harry Morrison worked as an electrical engineer at Carliol House in Newcastle upon Tyne from the early 1950s. Many of his photographs of Newcastle were taken in the early morning light before work. He successfully entered his photographs in competitions around the world throughout the 1950s. In 2014 he donated his collection of exhibition prints to the AmberSide Collection. There are a small number of photographs taken in the late 1940s before Harry Morrison’s arrival in North East England, which are included at the end of the exhibition. The others, taken on Tyneside and in Northumberland were taken between 1950 and 1956.
