South Shields Through the Ages, Paperback / softback Book

South Shields Through the Ages Paperback / softback

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.
