Book Description

25 Nov 2003
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating - a real education 31 July 2007
By DavyA TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is a cracking book.
It has some really brilliant old photographs & map plans of Newcastle inside, as well as explaining the derivations of the street names in the city.
It is divided into sections ( for example; "From Neville Street to Blackett Street" & "North Of Blackett Street") with various photographs for the specific area of Newcastle being discussed,coupled with,as already mentioned, an explanation of the various derivations of the street names in question.
It may only be forty seven pages long but it is well worth getting a hold of.
Its a slice of fascinating local history,with an introduction by the very interesting John Grundy (the ex teacher & local history / architecture buff off the telly) it really is a superb little book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 17 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Only relevant if you are familiar with Newcastle, as someone who is not from Newcastle but wanted to learn more about the town, showing old photo's of mostly grimy streets did not help!
