This fascinating collection of over 200 archive images from the picture library of the "Newcastle Evening Chronicle" provides a nostalgic insight into the changing history of Newcastle upon Tyne over the last century. Each image is accompanied by a detailed caption, bringing the past to life and describing many aspects of life in the city, including chapters on work, schools, transport, streets, industry and local events, providing a vital record of vanished vistas and past practices. This book will appeal to anyone with an interest in the history of the area, and also awaken memories of a bygone time for those who worked or lived among this thriving community.
