Here are 11 photos you will remember if you lived in Sunderland 40 years ago.

We are talking about the era of Chariots of Fire and Gregory’s Girl on the big screen, and Cheers and the A Team on the telly.

But perhaps you were too busy queuing for the Joplings sale, or busy at work at one of the Wearside businesses pictured.

You might remember when the over-60s got medallions to mark the Queen Mother’s 80th birthday or children were pictured looking through the Boots toy department just before Christmas.

Re-live those memories by taking a look through our selection.
