About Tales of Old South Shields

All three volumes of Tales of Old South Shields are inspired by the Memoirs of Jock Gordon, a Station Sergeant in South Shields Police Force. The three books together give "a brilliantly fictionalised account of life in the early twentieth century North East,....and present the struggles and triumphs of working people in the eventful years of War and Depression between 1900 and 1940. This is forgotten social history retold with gripping authenticity.” John Gray, Philosopher.'
