South Shields Through the Ages, Paperback Book

South Shields Through the Ages Paperback

Part of the Through the Ages series

Description

The coastal town of South Shields, which lies at the mouth of the River Tyne, has a rich and fascinating history.

The town was established as a hub for fishing and retains that tradition to this day.

Yet South Shields is much more than a historic maritime port, and over the years has had a number of various industries develop and prosper.

It has become a popular tourist destination, with its reconstructed Roman fort, Guiness clock tower and seafront complex. In a follow-up to South Shields: The Postcard Collection, Caroline Barnsley has created a new pictorial history of South Shields.

The book charts the town's buildings and monuments, and a miscellany of pubs, shops and street scenes.

Coupled with stunning modern-day photography, South Shields Through the Ages depicts the many changes and events the town has witnessed over the past century.
