SLIDESHOW: Hartlepool in the Fifties and Sixties

THANKS to Mail reader Derek Bonner for this collection of Memory Lane photographs.

They are from his family album in the 1950s and 1960s and include Hartlepool’s Oxford Street School football team, the Heortness Juvenile Jazz Band and Queen’s Coronation celebrations.
