Description

Jarrow Through Time is a unique insight into the illustrious history of one of England's finest cities. Reproduced in full colour, this is an exciting examination of Jarrow, the famous streets and the famous faces, and what they meant to the people of Jarrow throughout the 19th and into the 20th Century. Looking beyond the exquisite exterior of these well-kept photos, readers can see the historical context in which they are set, and through the author's factual captions for every picture and carefully-selected choice of images, the reader can achieve a reliable view of the city's history. Readers are invited to follow a timeline of events and watch the changing face of the city, as Paul Perry guides us through the city streets. There is something for everyone here, whether they have lived in Jarrow all their lives, or whether they are just visiting this fabulous city. It also shows how photography has continually evolved to keep up with an ever-changing society.
