Description Tales from the Tyne features true stories from the days when the Tyne was one of Britain's busiest ports at the heart of the great North-East coalfield. Highlighting the river's fascinating shipping history, the book includes chapters on the passenger steamers which linked Newcastle with London, the hard-working tugs, the floating hospital for fever patients and the ever-busy staiths where collier ships loaded a seemingly endless stream of "black diamonds". Includes many personal accounts of life and work on the Tyne.
