Condor plaque decision.
More than 80 blue plaques across the area help passers-by remember the likes of Thomas Bewick, the Stephensons and Lord Chief Justice Taylor.
But now natural history experts want a stuffed Andean Condor bird, which is in Newcastle's Hancock Museum, to have a plaque of its own.
The condor, the largest flying bird in the world, then still alive, was brought to the North East from Chile and crowds flocked to see it.
A meeting of heritage chiefs on January 26 will consider the plaque proposal.
