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.

      Police are investigating a Bedlington care home where inspectors say some elderly residents weren't kept safe.
      Medicines had allegedly gone missing at Baedling Manor Care Home, while the local authority was called in to monitor the home's safeguarding arrangements.
      The home's 49 residents "did not always experience safe care and treatment", inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) said.
      The CQC said it had launched an inspection after being contacted with concerns about "safeguarding people, staffing, recruitment, medicines, infection control, consent, complaints and the governance of the service".
      Downgrading the home, run by Alcyone Healthcare, from 'Good' to 'Requires Improvement', the report said: "People were not always safeguarded from the risk of harm. Incidents were not reported or recorded properly, and action was not always taken to address matters.
      "The home was placed into organisational safeguarding by the local authority and there were police investigations in progress."

      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.
