It was the year when Married With Children first hit our screens and The Bee Gees had a huge hit with You Win Again.
Closer to home, all this happened in South Tyneside in 1987 and here is the photographic proof.
Were you pictured with St Oswald’s Primary School during a music festival?
Perhaps you were one of the children pictured at Toner Avenue nursery or taking a lesson at St Wilfrid’s School.
We have all this and much more for you to peruse.
