13 pictures of Sunderland shoppers out in force in the 1990s, hitting Fawcett Street, Holmeside and Hylton Road

How about a day at Saxons, Simpsons and Josephs

Was it really 30-plus years ago when you could find all of this on Sunderland’s shopping streets.

Saxons, Josephs, West One and Gelateria Pyrgi were all a part of Wearside lives in the 1990s.

These shoppers were certainly keen to grab the latest bargains and we have 13 Echo photos of people in Holmeside, Fawcett Street, and Hylton Road.

Have a look. You just might spot someone you know.
