There is nothing quite like an old photograph or an interesting item of memorabilia for rousing a memory and stimulating an interest in the heritage and history of one's hometown. Sunderland Through Time author Keith Cockerill returns to the city of his birth for a second nostalgic pictorial tour of Wearside. Each of his images is accompanied by a look at one or more associated mementoes - an approach that will bring alive the absorbing history of Sunderland for the reader. Using a stunning variety of commemorative items, from mugs concealing Sunderland frogs to specially commissioned Sunderland spoons, this is an affectionate glimpse at the area's history. This unusual approach to Sunderland's rich heritage reveals many hidden gems, as well as celebrating the town's great achievements, from architecture to sports and local heroes.
