NOTES: Steetley Magnesite, also known as Hartlepool Magnesia Works and Palliser Works, was located at Hartlepool Headland. It produced a type of stone (Dolime) from dolomite, used during the 19th century. But by the 20th century the company had diversified into producing a type of brick made from calcined magnesia, known as magnesitet and in 1936 the first research laboratory was built. One of its first jobs was to explore the possibility of releasing magnesia from dolomitic lime (Dolime) by reacting it with seawater. The experiment was successful and in 1937 they acquired what’s now known as Steetley in Hartlepool, 24 acres of land on the coast and close to major steel works. A large factory was built including a pier used for transporting trucks from the sea to the works. The plant closed in the 1990s and was largely demolished in the 2000s, except for the remains of the pier seen here.

Product overview

Images are printed to order on high quality photographic paper using the latest digital technology. Images can be ordered in either matt, semi-gloss or gloss finish.

If you intend to frame your print behind glass, then we recommend that you select the semi-gloss or matt finish so that you get less light reflection from the print/glass.

The images in our collection, although kept to the highest possible standards, can sometimes display irregularities. These may have been caused during their original printing, or through damage that has occurred before coming to RIBA. In some cases therefore, these may be visible on your photographic reproduction.

Please note that because the original images available come in all shapes and sizes, and will never be cropped or distorted, different images will have different borders. When you order a product, the product choice screen will give you an approximate portrayal of how the image will fit on different print sizes.
