Our archives have come up with these wonderful images from the days when Northern Daily Mail photos were kept on glass plates.
We’ve kept a reminder of life in Hartlepool stretching back up to 100 years ago.
Our first picture shows Hartlepool Boys cricket team from around 1922.
Next is the scene when West Hartlepool was named the Jubilee Town and received its Charter of Incorporation. This picture shows citizens celebrating in Lynn Street outside the Star Hotel.
Third is a remarkable scene showing queues of people with barrows and pushchairs. They are pictured at the gas works in the early hours of the morning to buy coke.
Lastly, a farmer ploughs the fields near Hart Village.
