Summerhill Books » the Bookshelf » County Durham » North East Life in the 1930s, 40s & 50s

Remember the days when Monday was always wash day, tin baths in front of the fire and knitted bathing suits on the beach in a new book by local author Andrew Clark.

‘North East Life in the 1930s, 40s & 50s’ recalls life at home when the washing was done in a poss tub; the wireless was the main form of entertainment; every community had a cinema and a holiday would be a trip to the seaside.

With over 120 old photographs there are also memories of Christmas, childhood games, schooldays, rationing, local dance halls, early television and going to the match.
