The youngsters, dressed for a production of HMS Pinafore in 1979, went to St James RC Primary School, while the sailor-hatted Minerbirds, were members of the ladies section of the Westoe Miners’ Social Club, photographed a year earlier.
The year before that, youngsters from Hebburn School were forming the number 101 in the playground to commemorate the school’s birthday celebrations.
Do you remember being one of those photographed? Please get in touch with your memories.
