Newcastle in the Headlines

Availability: In stock

Newcastle in the Headlines tells the story of this great and vibrant city as seen through the stories and photographs from the renowned Chronicle, Journal and Sunday Sun newspapers. Author and journalist Dave Morton begins, aptly enough, with the death of Queen Victoria in 1901 and the reaction this caused throughout Newcastle. We then travel through the decades, taking in the First and Second World Wars, the opening of iconic bridges, the rise and fall of the mighty Newcastle United, heart-rending local tragedies, visits from royalty and celebrities and Geordie television heroes. All of this and much more is vividly brought to life through a narrative and photographs that inspire nostalgia and a deep appreciation for this city and its history.

Dave Morton perfectly encapsulates the essence of Newcastle and what has helped to create one of the most distinctive senses of community pride. This book highlights why Newcastle always was, and continues to be, a thriving town and the most culturally relevant city in the north-east.
