Due to a huge response, we delved back into the Gazette archives to find more photographs of South Tyneside streets that you may call home. But they are all from decades ago when they may have looked completely different.

Here’s another selection to enjoy. Take a look at School Street, Westoe Road, and Commercial Road.

Grab a glimpse of East Street, Edinburgh Road and Carr Street from times gone by.

You might remember some of these scenes but why not take a look for yourself and tell us more.
