An exhibition is set to open looking at life during the Second World War.
North Shields photographer Alison Spedding has put together the voices and photographs of local people as they recount stories of daily life during the war.
‘Distant Voices’ includes the story of Jack Watson, now 91-years-old, who left home at 17 for the first time and in his own words “I went to war a boy and came back a man”.
The exhibition also looks at rationing, evacuation, entertainment, National Service and bombing.
‘Distant Voices’ will be at the Old Low Light Heritage Centre, on North Shields Fish Quay, from May 8 to May 25.
