Around Shildon

Around Shildon
Our Price: £5.99

A former Saxon sheiling and medieval village, the town of Shildon sprang to life with the arrival of the Stockton and Darlington Railway in 1825. This fascinating collection of over 200 old photographs vividly evokes memories of one of the fastest growing towns of Victorian England. The photographs, drawn from archives and personal collections, include and some form the early years of photography. They celebrate the people of Shildon at work and at play, at church and in school, at sport and at leisure, in prosperity and adversity. Many will recognise the town they grew up in, their families and friends, even themselves. All will be fascinated by this evocative tribute to Shildon, the people and the place.
