Yes, Geoff Phillips recently made me custodian of his father Jack's Photographic Collection, this followed the gifting to me of Jack's Clippings Collection a number of year ago. Geoff is happy that the photographs are shared with a wide audience so that history of the area can be appreciate by all. By the way Geoff is a member of the Forum.
Geoff has produced a large number of books, some of which have been reviewed on the Forum before.
Couple of scans from Geoff's Newcastle Past & Present Millennium Edition sets the scene regarding his father jACK.

This is good news, I cannot think of anyone better to be a custodian of this amazing photographic collection (along with the 'clippings' collection) than you!
It is just such a regret that all of these amazing, detailed, rare postings that you have made here on the forum since you acquired the collection, have gone un-indexed.
They would have been even more of a valuable resource and source of information in the future if they were - over all the many years to come - able to be easily found in the way that so much posted on here before them, is easily found.
Very frustrating for ME, every time you post more great stuff Steve !!
