Series: Through Time

Tynemouth and Cullercoats are two villages on the north east coast with long and interesting histories. They are both now known as popular tourist attractions with Tynemouth dominated by its Priory and Castle and Cullercoats by its picturesque fisherman's bay. Over the last hundred years or so some parts remain largely the same but other areas have seen dramatic change including the loss of some prominent landmarks.Using colour postcards from North Tyneside Library's Local collection Ken Hutchinson offers us a glimpse of how life in the settlements has changed over the last century. This book will hopefully bring back happy memories to some, remind others of lost buildings and those not too familiar with the area will be introduced to a bygone age of Edwardian elegance, bathing machines and fisher folk.
