The West Newcastle Picture History Collection is based in West End Library and is accessible to all. There are around 17,000 images and maps of the West End, including Benwell, Elswick and Scotswood. The collection includes a large selection of images by Jimmy Forsyth, but also covers other west end wards in detail. Ask a member of staff in advance for access on a Wednesday, Friday and Saturday for unaided research; volunteers are present to help with enquiries on Mondays between 10am and 4pm.

This is a designated Safe Place for people with learning disabilities.
