This fascinating selection of photographs illustrates the extraordinary transformation that has taken place in Durham during the 20th century. The book offers an insight into the daily lives and living conditions of local people and gives the reader glimpses and details of familiar places during a century of unprecedented change.

Drawing on detailed local knowledge of the community, and illustrated with a wealth of black-and-white photographs, this book recalls what Durham has lost in terms of buildings, traditions and ways of life. It also acknowledges the regeneration that has taken place and celebrates the character and energy of local people as they move through the first years of this new century.
