21 nostalgic photos of Newcastle in 1997 and 1998

Here we have 21 incredible photographs which depict life in Newcastle in the late 1990s.

1997 was a historic year for the UK. Tony Blair won a landslide victory in the General Election, the UK won Eurovision and Princess Diana was tragically killed in Paris.

For Newcastle United, the 1997-98 season saw the Magpies finish 13th in the Premier League and reach the FA Cup final, losing to Arsenal.

The city looked significantly different in the late-90s, too. In 1998, Market Street was undergoing a significant amount of change and looked a bit worse for wear.

Equally, buildings that stand empty and derelict today were thriving nearly 30 years ago. Take the Fog and Firkin, for example. So take a look and let us know what you recognise.
