What we know about this image :

This shows what is probably the West Hartlepool Electricity Works and Burn Road can clearly be seen between the building and the railway line. The building to the left is most likely to be the Borough Electrical Engineer's Office. There was a coal depot at the bottom of Burn Road and it looks like coal on the railway trucks.

Although the railway lines are long gone, there is evidence of the remnants of an old railway bridge still in the Council Public Recycling Yard.

On the left of the picture beyond the bend in the road would now be JT Atkinson and further on the Tesco Extra Store.
