Synopsis

In the late 1860s, a lithograph was made from John Storey's painted view of Newcastle upon Tyne. It captures the town in incredible detail. Streets and buildings are frozen in time and the onlooker can take a time-travelling walk back to a townscape of almost 150 years ago. "City Guide" and author Alan Morgan was intrigued by John Storey's picture which hung in the Local Studies Section at Newcastle City Library. Like a detective, he researched everything that could be seen. The result is a new book, "Victorian Panorama", which invites the reader to explore a lost Newcastle and Gateshead by looking at the astonishing detail in the picture.You will discover a theatre by a brand new Central Station, windmills in the town centre, gasworks, tanning factories and a prison. There are forgotten streets and shops, nursery gardens and railway lines, bowling greens and cricket grounds, schools, churches and hospitals. You can see all the intricate workings of a bustling and thriving Victorian town, at once familiar, and yet so very different, to today's city.

Alan Morgan is a City Guide in Newcastle upon Tyne, and is the author of several books on the city.
