Our thanks to Ron Lawson for sharing some more history on Sunderland's pubs.

All of these Sunderland pubs had other uses as well - but do you know what they were?

What do a boys club, block of flats and a fitness centre have in common?

The answer is they were all in buildings which, at one point n history, were also Sunderland pubs.

Thanks to Ron Lawson, we can bring you another feature on the former hostelries of Wearside and their interesting past.

Ron is a former JP who is also part of the Sunderland Antiquarian Society and who has shared a part of his huge photo selection.

Ron gets our thanks once more for another great feature from his own archive of 11,500 photos.

This time, we have a pub which was a dance studio and two which were offices.
