Sorry, description is temporarily unavailable.

Whitley Bay is steeped in history. It started as a basic seaside resort, which at its peak saw train loads of people flocking to town for their holidays. But time waits for no man, nor town, and toward the end of the last century, Whitley Bay sadly became known more for the buildings it was losing to mass demolition schemes, than the wonderful seaside place it used to be. In his second book on the town, local journalist and author John Alexander, shows Whitley Bay from its early days, right up to the present. You will be amazed at what has been lost over the years due to so-called modernisation. With over 400 pictures, "Whitley Bay: Past and Present", is sure to be a hit with locals and tourists alike and will become a book that you will treasure and hand down through the generations.

Review Text

  • By stop4fire on 8 January 2009

    Surely the author must have realised people contemplating buying his book would actually have an interest in Whitley Bay, perhaps they were born there, or live there, or just want to remember days of old when they visited as a child. The photos are interesting enough but the text accompanying each one is loaded with venom and a genuine unpleasantness; if you couldn't think of a single good thing to say about the place why bother writing the book. If anyone feels compelled to see for themselves... get it from the library and stick to looking at the pictures (that's the only reason I gave it a couple of stars).

    A fascinating collection of photos of Whitley bay through the ages. The accompanying text is somewhat overly personal but I think that adds to its charm.
