9 photos of dodgems, rides and retro thrills as we look back to the fun of the South Tyneside fair
Hopefully, we can all enjoy them again soon when the pandemic restrictions lift.
In the meantime, we can at least enjoy this feast of fairground photos from the Shields Gazette archives.
They all show South Tyneside in years gone by and we hope they bring back wonderful memories.
So whether you are dedicated to the dodgems or watching out for the waltzers, join us as we re-live some fairground scenes.
