Gateshead's Coatsworth Road in 1910
Heritage Lottery Fund cash has been awarded to help restore a "hidden" Victorian street on Tyneside.
Coatsworth Road is one of Gateshead's oldest shopping streets, but many of the historic frontages have been obscured by modern facades.
The council has earmarked support of £1.4m, including £29,700 development funding, from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to improve the area.
Work is expected to begin in 2012 and be completed by 2017.
A total of £1.9m will be invested, with just over £1.4m coming from HLF if the council secures the full grant at the second round of the application, and partnership funding making up the total.
