From the Hebburn Crusaders jazz band to the Tufty Road Safety Club, every one of these scenes comes from South Tynesde as it looked in 1972.

Take a look at the 1972 beer festival at The Tavern. And how about the photo of Stanhope Road Secondary School in the snow.

They are all reminders of South Tyneside life 50 years ago.

And once you have browsed through these retro photos, get in touch with your own memories of life back then.

They are all reminders of South Tyneside life 50 years ago.
