Do you think we could recreate Bedlington Front Street from years ago by using old pics ?

I think it would be worth doing.

Malcolm , i reckon it would be good for your project. What do you think.

an example

here's two pics , we could add on to these and re-create the street if we could get enough pics from that time

Great idea John but we need to get the perspectives right then redo the whole setting.

Beyond me and the software I have......

Probably between you and Foxy you's could recreate Bedlington Front Street 1950's.

I've been thinking about this for sometime, and as more previously unseen material crops up the prospect comes ever closer. Simply stitching together a series of photos is no good, essentially the model needs to incorporate time as one of the axes. Putting an approximate date on each of the images then becomes crucial, though once enough data has been garnered the software would have a role in best sliding the image into the space-time frame.

It's really just an extension of the modelling software that's used for the 3D recreations we currently see on history programmes these days, but with the added plus of actual surface rendering data, and being able to move through time too! There'd be an underlying wire-frame creation, and obviously fuzzy bits in the presentation where essential data was still missing - but that's all part of the fun of re-creation.

It's way beyond my current knowledge of state of the art. Though one of our current neighbours - who we bump in to from time to time - is a worshipped expert in CGI, works a lot for "The Mouse", and would be the best person to ask. It's fascinating to talk to him about the latest CGI stuff coming up, and you could probably dine out in Geekland on the experience! Don't hold your breath on this as sometimes I don't see him from one year to the next as he's a real live jet-setter, but I will, at some point, report back on what he says on the matter. :)

Need them to write a 4D add-in! ;) It needs elements of that, elements of image digitisation, and elements of photo stitching software.

that sounds better altogether. i leave it in your capable hands to see what can be done and i will supply more rare pics for it.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”

      For you Bedlingtonians on the forum, do you know where this photograph was taken ?
      Can you get the year ?
      I think its hardish, lets see who knows.

      Hi.
      Been to see a very interesting person today.
      Had a chat on Bedlington and the Furnace.
      She has given me a photo of The Last of the Nailers.
      She says it is Bedlington and on the back it is dated 1858.
      This has got me puzzled as of the date but it is in her families photographs and she aint sure who it is of.
      She is getting on in late life now and have to take that into my thinking.
      Could this be the Gibson family of Bedlington and a previous family member have written this on the back of the photo ?
      I don't know, what do you think. ?
      Post something else later as soon as it is scanned. From the elderly lady too.
