|Still The Sea Rolls On – The Hartley Pit Calamity of 1862 by Keith Armstrong and Peter Dixon.|
Priced at £7.99 this is a soft backed A5 sized publication running to 64 pages and published by Northern Voices Community Projects in association with North Tyneside Council.
A commemoration in words and images to mark the 150th anniversary.
A good mixture of facts, history, photographs, drawings and poems. Quite a few of the illustrations are new to me and certainly add to the dreadful story.
An interesting if light read but does cover the more salient points of the disaster, leaving other weightier publications to deal with the more technical aspects of the events of that day and the aftermath.
