TAKING a step back in time, these images reveal life in Northumberland in decades gone by.
And for the first time, these snapshots of Blyth, Cramlington and Seaton Delaval’s history have been put together on a DVD.
Local history group Six Townships has spent five months compiling the 90-minute DVD entitled Days of Our Lives.
Group founder John Dawson said: “It’s all about events, living conditions, the coal mines, transport, shops and the streets from the 1910s. Not many people know that there used to be a little airport in Cramlington in the 1920s and 1930s but we have some footage of it.”
John, 57, of Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, added: “It’s more local history and I believe the younger folk of the day should learn a little bit about their roots. That’s why we are happy to send the DVD to schools completely for free.”
The DVD is also dedicated to the group’s co-founder David Allison who died earlier this year. It is priced at £9.99 and is available from www.sixtownships.org.uk
