in Union Square, North Shields was built in 1806-7 as a subscription library for Tynemouth Literary and Philosophical Society. It was later occupied from 1895-1980 by the Stag ( shipping) Line Ltd, which was one of Tyneside's oldest family owned shipping companies. The building still bears their 'Stag' emblem, Metropolitan Borough of North Tyneside.The building is now the North Tyneside Registrar's Office.
