  1. Somewhere between 1991 and 1994. Parkfield foundries closed in 1991 (you can see it in the picture) and that bridge that supports the 1825 way over Bowesfield Crescent was built in 1994 (it’s missing in the picture).


  2. The margins of the River Tees indicate that it was still tidal at the time of this photo.
    This suggests that the date was before 1995, which was when the Tees Barrage was opened, as after that date the river always appears to be full.


    • Just south of the A66, between Bowesfield lane and the river was an area where scrap yards were. I spent a lot of time in those scrap yards in my late teens. I would suggest that this picture was around 1985.
      (Hello uncle).


  3. The ‘Princess of Wales’ bridge is not visible in this photo and as that was built in 1992, the picture must be prior to then! I can’t identify any University buildings, but what appears to be the old Head Wrightson buildings are still identifiable and I believe these buildings were in use until the mid eighties, so I would guess the photo was taken between 1985 and 1990.


  4. That seems to be not that long ago – the new dual carriageway from Stockton Town Center to Ingleby Barwick seems missing but Halfords is visible.


  5. Davy’s Office still stand so latest time is Aug 2008. Ashmores Works are gone and grassed over – about 1979. Durham University-Stockton Campus looks well under way-about 1990. So my best shot is between 1990 and 2008.
