TAKE a trip back in time with our photo slideshow of buses in Hartlepool during the 1960s when the town was split in two.

These pictures show both West Hartlepool Corporation buses with their distinctive red and cream liveries and the blue Hartlepool buses.

A busy scene at Seaton Carew opposite the bus station. Who remembers the Magic Shop(red bay window).'Itching powder, stink bombs, whopee cushions and masks were just a few of the items on sale at the popular store. Can anyone name the models of the cars pictured. Write to Tom Collins at Memory Lane. tom.collins@jpress.co.uk
