Joseph Cowen Statue & Cross House Newcastle


Joseph Cowen Statue & Cross House, Newcastle. 

Joseph Cowen was the MP for Newcastle from 1874 to 1886.
An advocate of Irish home rule and a campaigner for Jewish rights, Cowen also supported efforts to improve the conditions of coal miners and their families.
The statue stands in front of Cross House, a distinctive seven story wedge shaped office block which was completed in 1911.
