Newcastle, which lies on the north bank of the River Tyne, has been a major city in the north-east of England since the Middle Ages. The stone castle, from which it derives its name, still stands, and the city first became prosperous because of its coal trade, later developing as a centre for shipbuilding and other heavy engineering. Newcastle has retained much of its eighteenth- and nineteenth-century fabric while developing itself as a modern city in recent decades. Heavy industry has declined but the city has regenerated many areas, as well as building exciting new developments, attracting many to this thriving city.
For those who are proud to live in Newcastle, as well as those visiting, this book is a must. Look through these photographs and you will quickly see why this city has such enduring appeal.
