Gateshead Through Time Paperback / softback
by Nick Neave
Part of the Through Time series
Gateshead was once described as the dirty lane leading to NewcastleA", and over the years it has often been portrayed as the 'poor relative' in comparison to its larger and more glamorous neighbor Newcastle, across the river Tyne.
In fact Gateshead has a long and proud industrial and social history, much of which has sadly gone, but in recent years there has been a revival in Gateshead's social and cultural infrastructure which has placed it firmly on the tourist map. Nick Neave has taken a series of photographs of Gateshead that clearly display its industrial and social heritage.
In some cases it is easy to see the improvements that have taken place in the environment, but in others the viewer is perhaps left with a feeling of nostalgia for what has gone forever.
Use this book as guide to see how Gateshead and its inhabitants have changed over the years.
