Here are 15 scenes of factory workers pictured at their workplace but how many do you recognise?

Is your former place of work pictured? What memories do these scenes bring back?

Our thanks go to Bill Hawkins of the Sunderland Antiquarian Society who has shared this great selection of images.

If these scenes have whet your appetite for more Wearside history, get along to the Antiquarian Society for more.

The Society’s base in Douro Terrace is open between 9.30am and noon on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
