Is that the Albert Edward dock or is it Smiths in the foreground?

hi Neil,
Sadly the Jungle is no longer with us, the whole block including shipping federation is now appartments, very compact ones at that, The Fleece is still there now called The Porthole cheers Bill

I get a headache just thinking about the Jungle bar!
Saturday nights have never been the same, slept many times on the ferry landing when I missed the last ferry back to South Shields.
On a good Sunday I usualy woke up when the first ferry bumped alongside the landing, or the rats woke me first!
What memories

Mike-Blyth
