A dip in a paddling pool possibly. Skating at Seaton or a day in the sun at Crimdon.

We have all of this and more thanks to photos courtesy of the excellent Hartlepool Museum Service and Hartlepool Library Service.

We also have reminders of former schools in the town and the fun that pupils had in the summer.

And we have a memory of a giant structure which took shape at Graythorp in a 70s summer.

Take a look.
