9 shops and pubs which were a part of Hartlepool's bustling Lynn Street back in the days when it was a shopping hub
Did you hear the one about the Hartlepool pub with a rooftop garden?
It’s true and you could find it in Lynn Street in decades gone by.
There were plenty of others fine trades which were going strong in the street back in its heyday, such as clothes shops, a furniture store and a coffee bar.
Lynn Street was a hive of activity and just look at the queues for the butchers shop in one of the photos in this retro collection which comes to us courtesy of the Hartlepool Museum Service and Hartlepool Library Service.
There’s much more besides. Take a look.
