Central Station, Newcastle

John Dobson (1787-1865)


Dobson's station was officially opened (before its completion) by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, 1850. Dobson, who was a friend of J. W. M. Turner, William Holman Hunt, and others, worked in the neo-classical tradition. This is considered to be his most important public work, although he also made a major contribution to the redevelopment of central Newcastle [JB].
