Santa in Sunderland: Nine pictures of Christmas grottos past in Wearside

It can be such a joyous moment when your loved one sets eyes on Santa in his grotto.

And to remind you of that special occasion, we have nine retro grotto scenes from the past.

They all come from the Sunderland Echo archives and include grottos in Hendon Community Centre, Joplings, and The Bridges.

So if you took your children to meet Father Christmas in years gone by, you could be in our seasonal retro tribute.
