Photographer's Note

The Central Arcade in Newcastle upon Tyne, England is an elegant Edwardian shopping arcade built in 1906 and designed by Oswald and Son, of Newcastle. It is contained within the Central Exchange building, which was built by Richard Grainger in 1836-38 to the designs of John Wardle and George Walker. The Central Exchange is a triangular building which was intended to be a corn exchange but became a subscription newsroom. The building was ravaged by fire in 1867 and again in 1901, and in 1906 the Central Arcade was created within the original building.
The building is bounded by Grainger Street, Gray Street, and Market Street with entrances serving all three streets. It houses several shops.
i found the arcade whilst wasting time when my better half was shopping and thought it was stunning. it's curved glass roof and ceramic tiles i found very eye catching.
