I think that's the first photo of the old Tyne Bridge I've ever seen.

Rare as chickens teeth, although Frank Manders has another photograph of the Georgian Bridge in his book Crossing The Tyne.

Ryton Ferry

I suppose this counts as a crossing of the river Tyne, albeit not a bridge, but instead the site of an 'ancient' ferry crossing, The Ryton Ferry.

There has been a ferry crossing between the north and south sides of the Tyne at Ryton since at least 1700 and it operated right up until the 1950's.

The white building in the images below, take 22nd September 2014, is known as Ferry House. The ferryman's house of the 18th century was swept away by the Great Flood on 1771.

Gateshead Local Studies have several images of the ferry which can be found via a search on their web site @ http://www.gatesheadlocalstudies.com...ts#prettyPhoto

Heddon on the Wall Local History Society have a page described as 'Sad boat accident at Ryton - 26 March 1877' which is worth reading through @ http://heddonhistory.weebly.com/sad-...yton-1877.html

On Monday morning a ferryboat, which conveys passengers across the river Tyne, near Ryton Station, was swamped, and three of the persons who were in the boat were drowned.
