Here are 11 shops that you may remember from Wearside in the 1970s and all of these photos come to us from Bill Hawkins of Sunderland Antiquarian Society.

That perfect jacket could be bought from Mr Bumble in Park Lane and shoes were available in abundance at Lynx in Vine Place.

Need a bracelet? Why not try Wittens. And if you were after toys, there was Lermans.

Thanks to Bill, we’ve got a great 1976 shopping trip lined up for you.

Take a look.
