Consett Iron Works in 1893
From back in days of wooden ships and iron men, comes a well described and beautifully photographed 1893 appraisal of the Consett Steelworks. This will appeal to anyone interested in the historical industrial revolution or Consett local history and how the area has changed. Sadly, every single thing photographed in this town has since been flattened, including the imposing Victorian Company offices. So a particularly poigniant reminder of a great industrial age past. For this softback binding, the wraparound cover is actually comprised of a map of Consett and the steelworks as it looked in 1893. The interior of the book contains no less than 24 illustrations, mainly of Consett and the Steelworks as they looked at the time.
