We have 8 Hartlepool Mail archive photos which show town criers in all their finery in years gone by.
Don’t they look great. We want to know more about these colourful scenes and we are sure you can help.
So whether you were looking grand outside the Grand Hotel in 2009 or standing tall at a Seaton Carew Victorian fair in 2015, we have it all.
1. A Grand reminder
For crying out loud! Philip Crowe was dressed as a town crier at the Grand Hotel in Hartlepool 13 years ago but who can tell us more about it?
2. Ringing in the memories
This town crier was promoting a carol service at Rossmere Park in 2006.
3. Brilliant at the Borough Hall
John Wood was having great fun at the Headland Heritage Festival open day in 2010.
4. A special meeting
Northern Saints School pupils listening to teacher and acting town crier Chris Tarpey in 2020.
