11 South Tyneside shops on the day they first opened - were you there for the big launch?
Were you there on the day these shops and stores first opened in South Tyneside?
From cupcakes to canines and barbers to biscuits. Businesses which specialised in all of these have featured in the Shields Gazette on their opening day launch.
And we have got the proof as the Gazette photographers were there to capture all the joy and excitement.
It gives us a chance to reminisce on other launch days too. Whether it was Boyes or Bay Biscuits, Pets At Home or Store Twenty One, we have them all.
Take a look.
