Nine retro photos reminding you what life was like in South Tyneside in 1974

Let's rewind to 1974

We’ve been digging into the Shields Gazette archives again! And this time we came up with these nine photos from the borough and they were all taken 50 years ago.

Do you recognise the Redwell amateur film makers, or the organisers of the Harvest Festival at St Hilda’s Church? How about the children enjoying the Lunar Jet ride at the amusements?

Have a look and then share your own memories of South Tyneside in the 1970s.
