9 super cool photos for Ice Cream Day - let's enjoy some tasty retro treats from Sunderland and County Durham
Are you ready for Ice Cream Day? We are with a selection of retro photos from Wearside and East Durham to get you in the spirit of the occasion.
Grab a taste of these retro scenes as we look forward to Ice Cream Day on Sunday, July 18.
The specially nominated day is an American tradition but it also gives us a chance to chew over some great ice cream images from the Sunderland Echo archives.
And it is especially appropriate with temperatures once again soaring outside.
So whether you were getting free ice cream at the Empire Cinema or ticking into cornets at the air show, we have it all. Take a look.
