We are talking about 2005 and we have 9 retro South Tyneside photos for you to enjoy.
Maybe you can recognise a familiar face in the South Shields cricket team line-up, or the winning Whiteleas Madrid side.
Perhaps you know someone on parade in the Catherine Cookson Festival.
Take a like at these Shields Gazette archive photos and then get in touch to tell us more.
