Local author Yvonne Young continues her story of the West End of Newcastle with her latest book ‘Westenders Part Two’. The book contains the memories of people who look back at the history of Benwell, Elswick and Scotswood, alongside over 150 old photographs.
Working life both past and present is featured as well as some of the old places in the area that have long gone. Also included are days to remember such as schooldays, the Second World War, holidays and the many pubs and clubs that were the centre of social life.
The author also looks at the West End today and shows the local people who are making a great contribution to their communities.
