Here’s something old and not so old – with pictures dating from the 1920s to 1991.

The oldest picture shows Coun and Mrs James Ransom, Mayor and Mayoress, admiring a floral display at Ocean Road Congregational Church, in aid of John Groom Crippleage and the Flower Girls’ Mission.

From 1989 Breda Alison is pictured at the Market Health Spa, while a year later the Gazette featured a photo of Bob and Anne Eagleton’s General Dealers. Do you remember why?

Finally, from 1991, Liz Henderson is captured playing for Tyneside Ladies. What can you tell me about the people pictured?

Do you remember
