All The Streets In Newcastle
"Hi – my name is Tania and I’ve set up this page for Rose, a ninety-three year old lady who lives in Newcastle. Rose is in the process of walking down all the streets in Newcastle, one by one, and writing about what she sees.
I only came to be in contact with Rose via my partner, who works with a woman who is related to Rose’s home-care nurse Wanda. Because I have set up a few blogs I was asked if I was interested in setting up one for Rose, to which I tentatively said yes, even though I don’t live in Newcastle anymore. After receiving the first letter in the post (and first folder of photos, via Dropbox via Wanda’s daughter Erica) I knew I was part of an interesting project.
How the project began is described in the first post here.
Rose writes her stories by hand and posts them to me. I type them up exactly as she has written them, add subheadings, choose some photos and put them on line. I also created the map images used as headers.
Rose doesn’t read this blog online but I will be able to pass comments to her if you leave them here.
