How about a bit of window shopping for this week’s RetroMail.

Here are four views of Hartlepool shops we loved in times gone by. We would love your memories of them.

Who remembers the Collier shop, pictured here in the Middleton Grange Shopping Centre in 1986.

We go back even further to 1983 for this view of Fred Swift’s florist shop in Murray Street. Did you get your flowers there?

The Frank Wright store in York Road – bookseller, stationer and toy specialist – got our photographer’s attention in 1984. Did you love to pay a visit.

And what about the Happy Days Children’s and Baby Wear store in York Road, pictured in 1985.

Frank Wrights was a popular venue for books and toys.
