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.
