by Steve Ellwood.
This book seeks to explore the River Tyne as it runs from source to sea, using old and contemporary photographs together with postcards to explore the communities, settlements and industries that have existed along its course.
The river is formed from the tributaries of the North and South Tyne rivers, which rise in the Scottish Borders and Cumbria respectively. Running for a total of around 120 miles, the waters of the Tyne pass through the moorlands of the counties of Cumbria and Northumberland, through fine agricultural lands, passing many market towns before entering industrial Tyneside, and eventually flowing into the North Sea.
Soft back. 128 pages. 24.6cms x 16.8cms approx. Colour and black & white photos.
