The photographs are taken from the unique Historic England Archive, the nation’s record of 12 million photographs, drawings, plans and documents covering England’s archaeology, architecture, social and local history. Pictures date from the earliest days of photography to the present and cover subjects from Bronze Age burials and medieval churches to cinemas and seaside resorts.

Newcastle-upon-Tyne is one of England’s most historically significant cities, with a proud heritage dating all the way back to Roman times. The city grew as an important centre for the wool trade in the fourteenth century and later became a major coal mining area, but it was the famous River Tyne that brought real wealth and prestige to the city with the development of shipbuilding and ship repair work. Historic England: Newcastleshows the city as it once was, from its streets and alleys to its famous shipyards and iconic bridges. This book helps you discover its remarkable history.
