Summer 1973

Pics from our summer holiday in 1973 – a trip up north, which will have been to stay with my father’s parents near Hull. We went a bit further north, as well.

The Transporter Bridge in Middlesborough – to be honest, until I saw this I never knew I’d been there.

A couple for any Dr Who fans out there – an exhibition in Stockton-on-Tees. Not sure whether they supplied a sofa to hide behind.

One of me and the Brother with our father – no idea where we are!

A great piece of 1970s fashion sir!

Skidby Mill near hull – I remember going there several times – pretty sure it was a functioning mill. Ah yes, a quick google and here it is.

These last two show a fairly uninspiring set of workings and a bloody great hole in the ground. This building site became the Humber Bridge – there are some more pics to come from 1974, but I’ve never seen the bridge complete.

“The Bittern” at Cottingham Station.

    Thank you for showing these fantastic images of the Doctor Who exhibition in Middlesbrough! I’ve been searching for images from that exhibition for a number of years. These are the first I’ve ever seen. Do you have any more by any chance? 🙂 Thanks again!

      Those pictures are great and as I said, they appear to be extremely rare! We’ve been searching for pics of that exhibition for years so if the others are of the same event we’d love to see them anyway?

      Would it be ok if we used your picture (of the Dalek) on our site please? Credited to you and your Dad of course. Our site is http://www.dalek6388.co.uk. We have a specific page on the history of the exhibition props and it would fit in really nicely there.
