Memories from South Tyneside’s working men’s clubs - from the weekly dance to trophy night

Let’s take a trip down memory lane.

Social and working men’s clubs have been a stronghold in South Tyneside for decades.

The Gazette archives contain lots of images from the popular clubs of the area over the years and they show everything from people having a quiet pint to dance night.

We have got a reminder of trophy nights in Hebburn and at the Perserverance. Perhaps our 1969 scene at the Alberta Social Club lounge will bring back memories.

Take a look at these 10 photographs and see if you are in the picture.

Is one of these clubs a favourite of yours?
