    Middlesbrough 1920-2020: A Century of Change

    by Araf Chohan

    Look back at a century in the life of Middlesbrough in this photographic history book from one of the town’s most respected authors and historians.

    Beginning in the period after the Great War, chart the changes in the town from the 1920s through the Second World War and the subsequent period of rebuilding.

    Through the decades, see how the town evolved as the years passed. The much-loved Victorian architecture is gradually lost, and the repeated regeneration of the St Hilda’s area changes the face of the original township. In the town centre, new shopping centres, businesses and open spaces develop where rows of terraced houses once stood.

    Much of this book charts living memory for those who recall how the town used to be. Witness the loss of much-loved landmarks and the construction of new buildings that have become a part of the landscape.
