Sunderland is largely the product of the 18th and 19th centuries, when coal mining and shipbuilding fuelled the rapid expansion of the city and endowed it with a rich legacy of Georgian and Victorian buildings. This architectural history charts the development of this built environment, with chapters devoted to civic buildings, churches, industrial and commercial premises (including hotels and pubs), transport infrastructure and private dwellings. The text is illustrated with archival images and specially commissioned photographs.
