Like the Spanish City to me.......

I've just been listening to "Midweek" on BBC Radio4, and one of the items was on The National Fairground Archive (which has loads of lovely pictures, one of which above, "P. Barak's Gallopers, close up of cockerel photographed August 1954", captured for posterity at the Spanish City, Whitley a building/demolition site apart from the North Sea facing facade)

That sounds like a cue for a song.....featuring probably the only time "Cullercoats and Whitley Bay" gets a mention in popular music!

Link to the "regeneration plan".....but don't hold your breath!
