We took a look in the Shields Gazette archives and found these nostalgic scenes which range from a whole room of Santas to children visiting a butchers to see how saveloys are made.
We have 9 photos for you to browse. Take a look and see how many of these photos bring back great memories.
1. A visit to Dicksons in 2013
Carly Pounder wrote to Michael Dickson asking how they make their saveloys and it all led to this visit in 2013. Does it bring back great memories?
