A retro tribute to the heroes of Wearside and County Durham with 9 poppy scenes

The UK will today pay tribute to its heroes as we fall silent in remembrance.

Remembrance Day marks the armistice agreement that ended the First World War on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918.

Each year, we pay tribute with a silence in the honour of those who fell, as well as by wearing poppies such as in these 9 retro photos from Wearside and County Durham.

From Hylton Castle to Ropery Walk, we look at poppy scenes from the Sunderland Echo archives.
