Middlesbrough : Britain in Old Photographs Paperback / softback
by Araf Chohan
The history of modern Middlesbrough, which only began with the laying out of the 'new' town in 1830, is a history of people coming from all parts of the British Isles to an industrial boom town.
However, the Middlesbrough of the last years of the twentieth century is almost unrecognisable from the town of fifty and more years ago.
That Middlesbrough with its iron and steel works, its docks and shipyards and its tightly packed terraces of Victorian houses is a Middlesbrough now gone, a Middlesbrough that was and a Middlesbrough of memories past.
In this book, Araf Chohan offers the reader the opportunity to travel back to see the Middlesbrough that existed before the changes of recent years took their toll and altered the urban townscape forever.
