Nine golden autumn memories from Sunderland over the years

Rich retro scenes from Autumn in Sunderland

Meteorological Autumn is here and that means scenes such as these.

What could be better than a look back at the gloriously natural aspects of Wearside on show at this time of year.

All these retro views come from the Sunderland Echo archives - from Barnes Park to Doxford and the Fish Quay.

Savour the memories as we look forward to more.
