A pair of woodcuts both cut into the plank side of the wood, not the end grain. At the top is one of North Shields and Tynemouth and not surprisingly at the mouth of the River Tyne. The other was taken from drawings and references in an old Art School sketch book and shows the derelict buildings and infrastructure in the old ironstone mining district in Cleveland, North Yorkshire not far from the steelworks of Middlesbrough and Teesside. The print of the mouth of the Tyne was cut in Tulip Wood and the other from an old piece of salvaged pine plank.
