Nine great pictures remembering happy times at Joplings - including the annual Christmas parade
We are going behind-the-scenes at Joplings with some great reminders of the people who made the store tick.
Thanks to Sunderland historian Bill Hawkins, we can share a series of Joplings photos with you.
They include the kitchen and hairdressing staff as well as the management.
We also have a photo of the annual parade through the streets of Sunderland to promote the Christmas fair.
And were you there when Coronation Street star Pat Phoenix came to town?
