Part of the Images of England series
Sunderland has changed more in the last decade than in the whole of the century before with barely a trace left of the great traditions of coalmining, shipbuilding and marine engineering for which the city was once famous.
This book looks at the last hundred years of Sunderland through a sequence of old photographs selected from the archives of the Sunderland Echo by journalist Carol Roberton.
Here are the shipyards and the miners, the shopkeepers and publicans, the schools, the churches and the homes of Wearside people of yesteryear.
This collection of images will be a nostalgic tour for those who grew up in Sunderland and a revelation for those who are newcomers to it or of a younger generation.
