In response to your question about "Baltic" and where the name came from:
The BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art is housed within the old Baltic Flour
Mill. The Flour Mill was built by Joseph Rank in 1950. Joseph Rank had
other Flour Mills - all of which he named after oceans or seas. The flour
inside Baltic actually came from a number of different sources, including
Canada and India.
The Baltic Flour Mill was such a landmark on the River Tyne that BALTIC
decided to keep the name. Most people in the locality refered to the
building as Baltic anyway.
Hope this is helpful

Hi Sarah !
I just surfed through Baltic sites http://www.balticmill.com/, can you tell
me where does the name "Baltic" come from ?
I am actually from the Baltics, from Estonia...
