We would like you to find out what life was like for children in Newcastle during the First World War. The war started in August 1914 and lasted for more than four years.
In this ebook you will meet Harry and Emmy Fisher. They will lead you on a journey around Newcastle, beginning in 1914 and ending at the Lit & Phil in 1918.
Harry and Emmy will tell you what’s happening in Newcastle. You can find out about food rationing, toys and how children are helping. They will explain what family life is like when Dad’s away at war.
Please join them on their journey.
