And here they are once again as we take a look at corner shops in the town from times gone by with the help of the Hartlepool Museum Service and Hartlepool Library Service.

There’s the Harrow Street corner shop and the Brus shops pictured when they were first built.

They are all those fantastic places where you could turn to for that last minute item you needed. But how many of these do you recognise?

Take a look and then get in touch to share your own memories of the corner shops you loved.
