Today we take a final peek at a new book about old Hartlepool.
Hartlepool: The Postcard Collection, by Stan Laundon and Paul Chrystal, features 200 vintage snaps - including several bygone stores.
“One of those we’ve included is Sages, of 6 Lynn Street, which was a stationer, printer and bookseller,” said Stan.
“Our photo shows the staff promoting a concert with a marvellously decorated car in around 1910.”
Also featured are photos of general dealers Gallons, of Northgate, as well as Boots the Chemist - which had entrances in Lynn Street and Lambton Street.
Perhaps one of the most interesting, however, is A. Wood - a “spectacle specialist” who operated from 27 Church Street.
l Hartlepool: The Postcard Collection is published by Amberley at £14.99.
