Durham Paper Mill chimney from Burn Road

What we know about this image :

The Durham Paper Mill chimney was a well-known local landmark and from December 1954, the lettering was lit up in red neon lights at night. The Paper Mill ceased production in  1965 and the chimney was demolished in 1971. Part of the paper mill building is still in use as a wallpaper store in Moreland Street.

This view of Burn Road is looking towards Stranton and the Tesco traffic lights are around the same spot today.(2014)
