Have you ever wandered along a street and wondered about its history? What was it like in the past? Has anything of interest happened there? There may be some clues in the street name. This book explores over 100 major (and some not so major) streets in central Newcastle upon Tyne. As well as information about likely origins of street names, there are descriptions of events that took place nearby. Generously illustrated with photographs from Newcastle City Library's Local Studies Collection, and specially drawn maps, each section of the book is arranged so that it can be used as a guide for city walks.
