Nine Sunderland pubs with a great story to tell - but how many did you know?

Have you heard the one about the Sunderland pub which changed its address?

Or how about the pub which had three names and the one which had a groundbreaking Sunderland character behind the bar?

What about the hotel which had bedrooms in two streets or the pub which had a lion.

We have all this and more thanks to the help of Ron Lawson, the former JP who is also part of the Sunderland Antiquarian Society.

He has shared a part of his huge photo collection of 11,500 pictures with us. Take a look at Ron’s great reminders of times gone by.
