Around Stockton & Norton by Paul Menzies

Around Stockton & Norton

Part of the In Old Photographs Series


Around Stockton & Norton by Paul Menzies

This superb selection of 200 photographs provides a nostalgic insight into the changing face of the neighbouring communities of Stockton and Norton on Tees over the last century. Each image is accompanied by a detailed caption, bringing the past to life and describing many aspects of life in the area, including chapters on work, industry and transport, as well as providing a vital record of vanished vistas and past practices. Norton, a settlement since Saxon times, was once the leading centre before Stockton rose to world fame, along with Darlington, as the termini of the world's first railway. Around Stockton and Norton is sure to bring back cherished memories of yesteryear for all who know and love this part of Cleveland.
