In recent years, Michael Richardson has collected a unique archive of old photographs and memorabilia relating to Durham. Many pictures have been donated by Durham people, and this collection focuses on the city's inhabitants at work and play, between the 1860s and the 1960s. Over two hundred well-chosen photographs, most of them hitherto unpublished, create a fascinating record of trades, transport, festivities, military matters, street scenes, royal visits, sport and leisure. There is an introduction that puts the images in the context of Durham's history, while each picture is fully captioned. Durham People will evoke nostalgic memories for many, and will give pleasure to all who know and love the city.
