This fascinating compilation of early Newcastle photographs, paintings, etchings and postcards takes us on a tour of one of the UK's greatest cities. We explore not only some of Newcastle's renowned landmarks, such as the Tyne bridges, but also less frequently pictured aspects of the city including its street characters, local markets, shops, theatres and early cinemas, and the historic River Tyne, by whose banks this great city developed and prospered. Newcastle-upon-Tyne has a rich and fascinating history, and this collection of images and informative captions will be essential reading for anybody who knows and loves this city. Principally sourced from Newcastle City Libraries' collections, Lost Newcastle in Colour unites a wealth of rare and unpublished images to reveal that the Newcastle of a century and more ago was as colourful and vibrant a city as it is in the present day.
