Newcastle, Grey Street and Hood Street, Gas Lamps
Gardens Parks and Urban Spaces
Outside the premises of Mawson, Swan and Morgan, now Waterstone's, stand ten lamp standards (six on Grey Street and four on Hood Street) dating from 1902-4, by W.H. Knowles and T.R. Milburn. Originally constructed as gas lamps in cast iron, with tapering hexagonal fluted shafts, the lights have now been converted - appropriately outside Swan's former building - to electricity.
