Durham City is one of the North East s hidden gems, rich in history with its Norman cathedral and castle, built on a rocky peninsula and surrounded on three sides by the River Wear. Its medieval market place and street plan remain almost untouched, and the city is full of hidden vennels, lanes and passageways. Dedicated local author Michael Richardson has assembled a unique collection of photographs and postcards of Durham, and takes us on a tour through the history of the city from the 1850s to the 1960s. This book is a valuable record of Durham s history and will appeal to all those who know and love this great city.
