What was Dunston like during the Victorian period – Y6

Jan 12, 2023History

6P loved exploring photographs of Victorian Dunston in comparison to the modern day Google Map equivalent. We looked at areas which were familiar to us to help develop our understanding of why changes had occurred between the 20th and 21st Century. We then went on to explore a map from 1899 and 2019 and were astounded at the amount of arable and general farm land. We hope to look at the Census for Dunston next week.
