SLIDESHOW: Life’s a beach through the decades

STILL waiting for summer to start?

Here at Memory Lane we thought we would remind you of what it looks like with these beach shots taken locally over the decades.

A game of leap frog on Seaton Carew beach back in the 1950s. Other forms of entertainment at Seaton Carew were donkey rides, the miniature railway, amusement arcades, paddling pool, roller skating on the outdoor rink or a swim in Seaton Baths.

While the photos do not all show sunny scenes, we hope you enjoy our latest trip back in time.

Remember every day is Memory Lane in the Hartlepool Mail.
