Has it changed much? Yes it has and here is the proof thanks to this series of photographs which come from the Sunderland Echo archives.

We have 10 photos from Wearside in 1970 and that includes a look at Thompsons shipyard, the Wheatsheaf lighthouse, and Doxfords locomotives.

Perhaps it brings back fond memories or maybe you would just like to take a look at how Sunderland used to look.

Join us on a journey back in time.
