Video: Summer of 1988: teenagers clamber into abandoned building in Jesmond, Newcastle, England.

When I was young

Video of a mate and I, age 17, clambering around an old abandoned building in Jesmond, Newcastle. Big geeks and 80’s fashion.  Plus a bit of driving around Jesmond (where are all the cars) near the end.

Camera was one of those heavy, shoulder mounted lumps of plastic that took an entire VHS cassette. The building is where a small housing estate now sits on Orchard Place, behind Manor House Road in Jesmond (Newcastle upon Tyne).  The building has a twin that still stands next door.  I’m posting the video as a chunk of nostalgia for the 1980s and a snapshot of Jesmond in this period of time.
