Sorry but I've looked through 1500 higher def images and don't have a better copy of that image.
When I worked at Wardley Colliery I used to go down that street every day. One of the Fitters lived in the street (Tommy Williams).
I checked Gateshead Libraries archive and found a photos of the little farmhouse the Burkett family lived in and a photograph of John Burkett's lathe. pics below. Hope this helps.
