Billingham by Paul Menzies


Billingham by Paul Menzies

In 1900, Billingham was a rural community with a history going back over 1,000 years. This fascinating collection of over 200 archive photographs celebrates more than a century of history: beginning in the very earliest days of photography, it moves from the country lanes and farms of the 1920s to the factories and industries - particularly, of course, ICI - of the 1960s and the bustling town of today. Local author Paul Menzies, who has lived in the region for many years, has drawn on interviews with residents for this collection, some conducted as long as thiry years ago. It will delight everyone who knows the town.

You'll always find what you never knew you were looking for and you're always spoilt for choice.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.

Sarah Davis

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.
