Did you live in one of these Wearside houses between the late 1940s and the early 1970s? We have eight photos to share with you of how Sunderland looked around six decades ago.

The fashions may have changed over the years but so have the houses too. Do you remember the days of cobbled streets? We have them and much more in this look back in time.

The archive images have been shared with us by Bill Hawkins. Bill is a member of the Sunderland Antiquarian Society and to find out more about the history of Sunderland, visit the society’s Facebook page or its website at http://www.sunderland-antiquarians.org
