9 photos showing how Sunderland looked in the mid-60s - have a look at how much the town has changed

There are some very familiar streets in our retro feature today – but this is what they looked like 60 years ago.

From Kayll Road to Bridge Street and High Street West to Silksworth Row – we have them all courtesy of Bill Hawkins from Sunderland Antiquarian Society.

Bill has provided us with some wonderful images in the past and today’s feature is no exception.

Some of you may remember when Wearside’s streets looked like this. Others may be interested to know how Sunderland looked long before they were born.

Whatever your reason for taking a look, you’re welcome to enjoy our retro feature.

We thank Bill for another great collection of images. To find out more about the history of Sunderland, visit the Antiquarian Society’s Facebook page or its website at http://www.sunderland-antiquarians.org
