A tale from a past Newcastle project!

Safeline were recently up north on completing our Newcastle asbestos removal assessment, and whilst completing this we encountered lots of asbestos. But also because of the nature of the site and the nature of the removal survey, lots of lost artefacts!

In the asbestos removal business, and because of the nature of asbestos, by and large, the remaining asbestos left in the building stock is usually very inaccessible to the public. This results in a lot of climbing for me, but also some extremely interesting finds!

On the Newcastle Asbestos removal survey, we came across a really old 1970's "viewmaster". This would have been worth an absolute fortune if it was not for the fact that the was covered in unconfirmed dust!!

Doing some digging on the internet, it transpires that these were first manufactured in 1931, as an adult entertainment medium! Sadly, we had to dispose of this item because we couldn't confirm what the dust actually was!

That is not the weirdest item we have ever found, but this is a family blog and frankly, some things are best left to the imagination!

Why is asbestos dangerous?

Asbestos is generally safe if left alone but becomes extremely dangerous when disturbed. Airborne fibres can be breathed in which can lead to numerous long-term lung diseases such as asbestosis and mesothelioma amongst others.
