GREG RAY: Pictures of our past

THIS picture looks like Newcastle East, but is it?

It's an unlabelled negative, probably taken in the 1930s or 1940s by a Herald or Sun photographer.

At left is a local shop, with "John Bull" advertisements prominent.

Can any readers help pinpoint the location?

Several times a week, Greg posts an image or gallery of images that relates to some aspect of the past, usually in the Hunter Region.

The Herald invites readers to post comments, observations and recollections of their own in response. Extra information about any of the images is especially welcome.
