Voices of Geordie Childhood: Growing Up in Tyne and Wear

Voices of Geordie Childhood is a remarkable compilation of oral history extracts drawn from the extensive Beamish Museum Audio Archive, revealing what childhood was like as recalled by over one hundred Tynesiders born at the turn of the century and onwards. Vivid memories are recounted, including stories of family and friends, of play, school, home and work, of sheltering from air raids and trips to the seaside. This delightful compendium of memories offers a child's-eye view of life, from staying in hospital to making Christmas decorations, from watching street entertainers to wearing charity boots - revealing a Geordie childhood now fading from memory. Richly illustrated with over sixty pictures from the museum archive, many previously unpublished, this volume is sure to bring back wonderful reminiscences of childhood, and jog memories for those who grew up in Tyne and Wear.
