Durham Cathedral City from Old Photographs Summary

Durham Cathedral City from Old Photographs by Michael Richardson

Dedicated local author, Michael Richardson has assembled a unique archive of photographs and postcards of Durham which chronicles the history of the city from 1855 into the 1960s. In this, his fourth book on Durham and its people, the author presents hitherto unpublished photographs, many dating back a hundred years or more. The cathedral is the visual focus of the city, and Durham: Cathedral City highlights the central role that this unique building has played in the lives of Durham inhabitants, whether they be clergy, academics, students or miners. However, Durham is more than its Cathedral, and as Michael Richardson's photographs clearly illustrate, there is great diversity of everyday life and a host of special events occurring in the city. Events included are, the annual Miner's Gala, the visit of Ribbentrop in 1936 and the part played by Durham citizens during the First and Second World Wars. This book is a valuable record of Durham's past which will appeal to both resident and visitor, and all who know and love the Cathedral city.
