17 nostalgic photos showing life in South Tyneside in 1980

Let's rewind to 1980 in South Tyneside.

It is hard to believe that 44 years have passed since these photographs were taken.

But that’s exactly when this selection of 17 pictures were first taken on South Tyneside, showing school scenes, stage societies and charity events.

We had a sponsored fire engine pull and fun at the seaside.

So why not take a look and re-live a bygone era.

And we would love to hear from you with your own memories of South Tyneside from four decades ago.
