Yarm, in the old County of Durham, is an ancient place and was the main port on the Rive Tees from the 12th to the 18th century. As it was fifteen miles from the sea, when in the 19th century Stockton developed as a port Yarm inevitably went into decline, although as the ships went the railway came and the town still had some industry including a flour mill, a tannery, paper mills and a vinegar brewery. Paul Chrystal’s illustrated history combining informative captions with period images features the town in this interesting period when it was still relatively industrial. The evocative cover photograph sums up what the town was like at this time.
