Sunderland is largely a product of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, when coalmining and shipbuilding fuelled rapid expansion and development. Once known as the `largest shipbuilding town in the world', Sunderland's proud and distinctive identity is embodied in its historic buildings and in its changing urban form.

The Architecture of Sunderland, 1700-1914 examines the city's architectural history during the highpoint of its growth and prosperity. Exploring the cityscape from the richest to the humblest buildings, it brings to life the economic, social and cultural forces that have shaped the city. The text is illustrated with fascinating archival images and photographs taken especially for this volume.
