WHAT a wonderful response we got when we asked for your photographic memories of The Tall Ships Races.

We were stunned and delighted when about 80 of you came forward with the picture proof of the biggest event ever to come to Hartlepool.

The deadline has now passed for people to send in their photographs, but a last-minute surge of entries means we have plenty more to share with you.

These came from Julie Cordiner, Mick Peterson, Ian Fletcher, David Watts, Harry Preston, Peter Fincken, and Shaun Preston.

Don’t worry if yours have not appeared in the Hartlepool Mail’s recent picture spreads.

All submissions are being weighed up for potential inclusion in a forthcoming exhibition.

The hard task starts now. We have to choose the best of the submissions to go on display as part of an exhibition at Hartlepool Art Gallery.

They will be put on public display at The Tall Ships Races – One Year On exhibition to be held at the gallery from June 25 to August 31.

Watch out for more details of the exhibition and the winning photographs.

In the meantime, thanks to the dozens of you who sent in some simply wonderful images.
