Description - Teesside and the Seaside by Ernie Crust

This fascinating collection of more than 200 photographs captures some of the ways in which the area of Teesside has changed over the last 100 years. Many of the images were taken by local photographer Jack Wright, and have never previously been published. His photographs offer an intriguing glimpse into the developments of this area of the east coast over the years, from the depression of the 1920s and the golden era of the 1930s (when ambitious developments such as the Coatham Enclosure were built), on to the dark years of the Second World War and then to the beauty pageants and children's shows of the 1950s. This collection will both captivate those who remember Teesside in days gone by and delight anyone who has ever longed to be beside the seaside.
