Wallsend History Tour is a unique insight into the illustrious history of this part of the country. Complete with a map of the town's most notable places, readers are invited to follow a timeline of events and watch the changing face of the town as Ken Hutchinson guides us through the local streets.
There is something for everyone here, whether they have lived in the area for all of their lives, or whether they are just visiting this fabulous town. The book shows how photography has evolved to document an ever-changing society.
