Creating Crowtree, celebrating spring and trying out darts - Sunderland life in 1975

We are rolling back the clock for a closer look at 1970s Sunderland, and what life was like in the city.

This week’s pictures are from 1975, and feature welly flinging, Joblings and a trip to Roker Park. See if you can spot any familiar faces in our photographs.
