I own a number of the '....Through Time.' series of books about Newcastle and its surrounding suburbs and, as the subject of this book is the area where I grew up, I was looking forward to perusing something of similar fare to the others. However, the difference between this book and the others in the series is that this book is a personal project for two generations of one family: the father (provider of most of the older photos) and the son (the author and photographer of the later photos). The father has chronicled his native Newcastle East End and, in doing so, has a back catalogue of landscapes and vistas which have been lost with the regeneration of the area since the 1980s; the son, and author, has captured, with a keen eye, the post regeneration. However, it is the supporting narrative of each before and after photograph that sets this book apart; the personal recollections of each photograph will hit a cord for anyone who has lived through this regeneration.

Although I bought this book, as I have with the rest of the series, for nostalgic purposes, its biggest positive for me is that the author has presented both eras objectively which has left me - and will no doubt other readers from the area - with a sense of pride in both. Well done to both father and son!

A wonderful insight to how places looked in years gone by! I loved looking at the split view of places especially the late 18th century and the early 19th century. It paints a picture of how our ancestors lived.

I was born and bred in Byker and this book has captured some of those long, lost images and memories of my childhood. A worthy read and a welcome addition to my library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some pictures are old and some are just sort of old. 29 Dec. 2013
By zanna - Published on Amazon.com

Having just returned from a family history trip to this area, I was excited to get this book to get a feel for the area where my ancestors lived. There are many "old" pictures of Newcastle, but so many of them were taken around the seventies and eighties. I do not consider those "old" since the camera has been around since the 1850's for so. I have to assume that very little changed between the later 1800's and early 1900's when the "old" pictures of the 1970's were taken. However Mr. Ritson did a great just of taking the current views and almost the exact angle of the pictures that were taken by his father in the 1970's. I really enjoyed seeing how much things have changed and I appreciate the British taking care of many their historical areas. Many of the areas that could have been "slum" have been turned into lucrative business and law offices. Unlike the "Around Durham" book where "Durham" could mean city or county, I knew that "Newcastle East" was specifically that place. Does anyone out there have truly OLD pictures of that area or Durham County? I loved to see them. Thanks for saving history in pictures. Future generations will appreciate these books even more.
