The history of modern Middlesbrough, which only began with the laying out of the "new" town in 1830, is a history of people coming from all parts of the British Isles to an industrial boom town. However, the Middlesbrough of the last years of the 20th century is almost unrecognizable from the town of 50 and more years ago. That Middlesbrough with its iron and steel works, its docks and shipyards, and its tightly packed terraces of Victorian houses is a Middlesbrough now gone, a Middlesbrough that was, and a Middlesbrough of memories past. In this book, Araf Chohan offers the reader the opportunity to travel back to see the Middlesbrough that existed before the changes of recent years took their toll and altered the urban townscape forever.
Bumping into Matthew Jarratt reminded Topsy of his proposal for the opening of the new Arts Council North East building in Newcastle some years ago in which he suggested splashing a big pool of ink on the new carpet. The proposal (called Splashing Out) was not commissioned by the Arts Council.

Middlesbrough's rise was truly extraordinary, from almost nothing in 1850 to a great industrial city within a few decades, its success based on iron and steel. This book examines the development. It discusses the role of urban planners, charts the growth of the iron and steel industry including the introduction of new manufacturing techniques and the exploitation of important local iron ore deposits, and explores the role of a vast range of self-help institutions through which workers supported themselves at a time when aid from the state was minimal. It shows how industries clustered, explaining why Middlesbrough became the hub of such a cluster; outlines the demographic nature of the workforce, showing how there was much migration, with people coming to Middlesbrough to work for a while then leaving; and concludes by examining the adverse factors which quickly became apparent, some of which were to lead to Middlesbrough's decline - over-dependence on one industry, a relatively undiversified economic and social structure, and insufficient urban infrastructure which left the city vulnerable to debilitating environmental pollution.
