Memories from South Tyneside's workingmen's clubs - from the weekly dance to trophy night

Social and workingmen’s clubs have been a stronghold in South Tyneside for decades.

And as we enter a new year, perhaps they will be the place where you wile away the last few hours of 2021 or herald the arrival of 2022.

The Gazette archives contain lots of images from the popular clubs of the area over the years and they show everything from people having a quiet pint to dance night.

We have got a reminder of trophy nights in Hebburn and at the Perserverance. Perhaps our 1969 scene at the Alberta Social Club lounge will bring back memories.

Take a look at these 9 photographs and see if you are in the picture.

Is one of these clubs a favourite of yours? Do you have memories of welcoming a new year at one of them in decades gone by?
