About This Book

Contrasting a selection of eighty archive images with new photographs taken from the same location today, this fascinating selection traces some of the changes and developments that have taken place in Middlesbrough during the last century, as many old agricultural communities were swallowed up by the development of modern industry. With sections on work, streets, buildings, leisure and recreation, all aspects of life in the town are covered, revealing the changing face of Middlesbrough and providing a fascinating insight into a way of life now lost. Featuring many previously unpublished images, this pictorial record will appeal to all who remember the town as it was, and offers a snapshot of the past to new generations.
