GOING SHOPPING IN SUNDERLAND

by Alan Brett and Philip Curtis

A look back to the days of shopping in the shops and department stores of Wearside such as Binns, Joplings, Blacketts and Liverpool House. A time when every street seemed to have a corner shop; when Harry Berg was the ‘Egg King’ of Hendon Road; willicks, tripe and pickled tongue were local delicacies and X-ray machines were a common sight in shoe shops.

This latest A4, 48-page book from Black Cat Publications features shop histories and articles along with 400 wonderful photographs and illustrations. £4.99 + £1.90 P&P
