Local Sir James Knott Youth Centre - YMCA
North Shields

Built in 1938 this functional building dominates the heart of North Shields. The only concession to 'art' at the time seems to be the art deco dancing ladies of the iron balcony. In 1994, the 150th anniversary of the foundation of the YMCA movement in 1844 was celebrated with mosaics of swimmers on the East wall
