Don't you just love face painting! These people did in nine retro photos from Sunderland and County Durham's past

Let’s face it. We just love to reminisce on the past – especially when it is filled with smiles.

And that is exactly what we have here with a series of 9 Sunderland and County Durham face painting photos from times gone by.

There’s a Pennywell Youth Project fete, a Sunderland High School charity day and a Southwick Community Centre event to look back on.

How about the attempt to break face painting records in Fulwell or the fun-filled scene in The Bridges? We have it all in this collection of photos from the Echo archives.

So why not take a look and see if you can spot someone you know.
