We have the answers for nine of them thanks to Ron Lawson, the former JP who is also part of the excellent Sunderland Antiquarian Society.
He shares his knowledge with us as well as plenty of historic photographs.
Find out why pubs such as the Bush Inn and Wellington Hotel were given their identity.
Ron gets our thanks once more for another great feature from his own archive of 11,500 photos.
