This superb collection of over tow hundred photographs traces the history of Bishop Aukland from its origins as North Aclet to modern times. Auckland Castle, the residence of the bishops of Durham for almost eight hundred years, is represented, as are the market-place and the restoration of the town's superb Town Hall. Bishop Aukland sits on a coalfield and its strong association with mining is clear from the dramatic images chosen by author Charlie Emett. Bishop Aukland in Old Photographs also shows the expansion of the local railways and the development of new enterprises, shops and leisure activities. Local and eminent personalities play their part within these pages. The town's famous newspapers, the Northern Echo and the Darlington and Stockton Times, are also acknowledged in this nostalgic tribute to life in Bishop Auckland over the last one hundred years. It will fascinate residents and visitors alike, and is certain to stir a memory or two.
