Bonded Warehouses built 1844 destroyed by fire, Monday Febuary 24 1997.
In the 1881 census Thomas KANE was head of the house at 6 Hanover Street, Newcastle Upon Tyne, I'm not sure where the house was but I think it would have been at the top of the hill as there are some buildings shown on a 1919 Ordanance Survey map of the area. Used as a location in several Cathrine Cookson TV adaptations.
These bonded warehouses would have possible been similar to the ones where the fire started in Gateshead in 1854.
