It is only 50 years ago that these photos were taken. They show a cross section of the town, from winning the city section of Britain in Bloom to a new general hospital.

Who remembers the tunnel to old town which always flooded? Or how about the footbridge to Northgate.

We have all this and more in 9 reminders of 1972 which were provided to us by the Hartlepool Museum Service and Hartlepool Library Service.
