This 100-second clip shows the hustle and bustle of Sunderland and Wearmouth in 1964.

See the people of the day go about their business in a city centre that included Binns and Joplings department stores, and Wearmouth as a busy haven of industry and shipbuilding, lined with ships and manufacturing, long before the addition of the St Peter’s University campus. Finally, see Sunderland’s former railway station, which was redeveloped in 1965.

Look at the busy 1960s shopping scene in Sunderland town centre.

We hope that you enjoy this film of Sunderland gone by – do you have memories of the shops and industries featured in the film?
