How Captain Johnson brough the horse from Treport by Sue Bennett

In the past, Sue has worked for Sunderland Universitywhich resulted in an abiding and affectionate attachment to the city.

How Captain Johnson brought the horse from Treport is a tale reproduced from ‘’Tales and Ballards from Wearside’’ by John Green, 1897.  Much of the story is told in local dialect and is a wonderful picture of wily maritime characters.  The book is sewn as a single section, traditionally bound volume including a reproduction period map as end papers and simple hand drawn illustrations by the artist.
