In 1900, Billingham was a rural community with a history going back over 1,000 years. This fascinating collection of over 200 archive photographs celebrates more than a century of history: beginning in the very earliest days of photography, it moves from the country lanes and farms of the 1920s to the factories and industries - particularly, of course, ICI - of the 1960s and the bustling town of today. Local author Paul Menzies, who has lived in the region for many years, has drawn on interviews with residents for this collection, some conducted as long as thirty years ago. It will delight everyone who knows the town.
