Hartlepool Through The Ages is a sister volume to Paul Chrystal's Hartlepool Through Time, produced this time with Stan Laundon. Stan not only provides many of the old images but has taken care of the modern photography and, in so doing, has given us some stunning images of Hartlepool as it is today. Hartlepool Through the Ages offers a further 200 pictures or so, none of which appeared in the earlier volume. As before, the book explores the three towns that make up Hartlepool (`Old Hartlepool', West Hartlepool and Hartlepool), along with outlying villages, this time including Wolviston, Blackhall and Crimdon. In this selection you will meet Chick Henderson, Joe Brown, Terry Bell, Henry Smith, Captain Perry, Egbert the tank, Winston Churchill and Miss Great Britain, among others. The authors will take you to the steelworks north and south, to Blackhall Rocks, Steetley Magnesite, Greatham Co-op and to the top of Christ Church, and will show you parts of the town by night and by day; you'll learn how to street dance on the pier and will watch a rehearsal of The Wizard of Oz. Altogether, Hartlepool Through the Ages is a warm and colourful celebration of a warm and colourful town, past and present.
