Station Name: NEWCASTLE NEW BRIDGE STREET

The south façade of the elegant Picton House, formerly serving New Bridge Street station and accommodating the B&T offices, during demolition in April/May 1970. The ‘Central Motorway East’ (now A167M) required its site. It is ironic that the name of John Dobson, the architect of this building, is immortalised in a particularly unattractive thoroughfare, opened a short distance to the west about the same time that Picton House was removed.
