Step back in time with vintage film of the mouth of the River Tyne.

In 1928, aviator Sir Alan Cobham completed a 22,000 mile survey flight. He landed with great fanfare at the mouth of the River Tyne.

There are shots of the crowds on the riverbank, with buildings behind.

I love learning about history, and for the past 30 years have enjoyed books, films, and documentaries on the topic. On days off from work my favourite destination with friends and family are museums, historic buildings, and archaeological sites, or just walking around interesting streets with old buildings to admire.
