11 Sunderland pubs which closed in the 1960s. How many do you remember?

A pint and a chinwag with pals. What could be better. And that’s precisely what you could look forward to in these former Sunderland pubs.

Sadly, they all closed in the 1960s but we can share memories of them with you.

Each photo and story comes to us courtesy of Ron Lawson, the former JP who is also part of the Sunderland Antiquarian Society and who has shared a part of his huge photo selection.

Take a look at Ron’s great reminders of times gone by.
