Title: The Turnpike Road - Sunniside, Marley Hill, Byermoor.
Description: Seaham, Durham, The People's History. 1998, First Edition. (ISBN: 1902527011) Soft Cover. 128 pp, 9 3/8" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, map. "This new collection of over 200 photographs once again acknowledges the part coal mining played in our lives, but we also dwell on the vital role played by the farmers, market gardeners and food distributors. Throughout the grim years of the Second World War, when our island was virtually under siege, the agricultural industry fed the natiion and their contribution to the war effort was vital. The role of the agricultural industry has not diminished - home grown produce is still a vital commodity. The book pays tribute to the 'ordinary' people of our villages and we have included many of the families and individuals who have contributed to our community in their own special way. It is unfortunate but inevitable that some people will be omitted, but the selection appearing within these pages are representative of the many characters who have lived and worked along and around 'The Turnpike Road'." Contents: Introduction: The Coming of The Turnpike; Sunniside; Marley Hill; Byermoor to The Hobson; Remember the Blessings; On the Front Line; Acknowledgements and Dedication. Interior - small light soiling mark in text of page 19 (fully legible), otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - one tiny corner crease. Very Good.
