Whitley Bay and Seaton Sluice are two towns on the North East coast with fascinating histories. They are now both popular with tourists but started life in different ways. Whitley Bay was developed as a tourist resort in the last century whereas Seaton Sluice was built in the 1700s as an industrial centre around a busy port. Over the last hundred years they have both witnessed dramatic change including the loss of some prominent landmarks. Using mainly colour postcards from North Tyneside Library's local collection, author and local historian Ken Hutchinson gives us a glimpse at how life in the settlements has changed over the last century. Ken hopes the book will bring back happy memories to some, remind others of the lost buildings and structures, and introduce those unfamiliar with the areas to two attractive seaside towns linked by a spectacular coastline.
