Tyneside Stories & Recitations (or to give it is’s full title "Tyneside Stories and Recitations, Collected, Edited & Told by C. E. Catcheside-Warrington – (here the number is stated) – J. G. Windows Ltd., Central Arcade, Newcastle”) is a Chapbook of Geordie folk songs consisting of six volumes. As it stated on the covers, the publications were compiled and edited by Charles Ernest Catcheside-Warrington.

The books cost initially 1/= (One Shilling), and although undated, it is thought that the books were published in the 1930s, although according to "A Dictionary of North East Dialect" 2005[1] they were printed in 1917. .

The publication[edit]

Charles Ernest Catcheside-Warrington.edited the six volumes of "Tyneside Stories & Recitations", a series of small booklets each of around 32 pages long and containing a mixture of songs, verse, recitations and stories, all by local Tyneside writers, some well-known, others new to the readers.

The contents of these volumes, unlike the previous four volumes of "Tyneside Songs", are less value historically, but nevertheless give the readers a feel of the lives and times of previous generations.
