Old photographs allow us to relive the past and the lives of the people in it, and through 162 superbly preserved images Gateshead From Old Photographs provides a spectacular insight to the lives of those who lived in this popular north-east town. Gateshead has had a rich history and throughout the twentieth century it has experienced huge changes. Major slum-clearance programmes resulted in wholescale demolition of some areas and a renovation of the entire landscape as many streets and buildings were lost to locals. Through beautifully maintained archive photographs this book allows a nostalgic look back at a period that is gone but not forgotten and is a fitting tribute to the memories of time gone by.
