File:Welcoming Basque children to Newcastle upon Tyne (28966554176).jpg
English: View of John Grantham, Lord Mayor of Newcastle welcoming Basque children escaping from the Spanish Civil War, 29 June 1937 (TWAM ref. DF.GRA/5/3).
These images belong to a series of albums documenting John Grantham’s service to the City of Newcastle upon Tyne as its Sheriff 1924-1925 and its Lord Mayor 1936-1937. John Grantham was born in Blyth in 1877 and became a cinema proprietor in Newcastle. He was elected to the City Council in 1912 and became an alderman in 1932. The albums give us an interesting insight into the duties of Lord Mayor and Sheriff as well as a fascinating picture of the times.
