It was only in 1982 when the Echo was reporting on new baths at Monkwearmouth pit, a much-deserved honour for the team behind the Binns window displays and a facelift at Roker Park.

We have all this and plenty more thanks to a selection of archive images from 39 years ago.

The Jolly Girls, a Royal Navy ship's visit and the Echo’s cook of the year also made the news.

Why not take a look for yourself and re-live the memories.
