Pictures of old Darlington
There's a great collection of old postcards and photos of the Darlington area on this website.
There are pictures here of Thirsk, which features in Secrets of the Night. At left is a photo of mine of The Three Tuns, in which some scenes are set.
There are some more in the middle of this page, though I note that the picture of The Three Tuns isn't working. Have to fix that.
This page is particularly interesting. It compares modern pictures with old photographs.
Darlington isn't that far from here, and my husband's family lived in Middlesbrough, not far away, after moving from rural Yorkshire in the Beverley area to get jobs in industry. Part of my MIP, An Unlikely Countess, is set in Darlington, which is how I found this site in the first place.
