We love reader contributions to our nostalgia pages, especially when they involve great photographs from times gone by.

The building of the new Central Estate. Does this bring back memories?

This week, we are delighted to share four images which show Hartlepool as it looked 35 years ago.

They come to us thanks to John Roe from the West View area of town.

Taking time for a breather beside the Town Wall arch.

One shows the building of the new Central Estate while another shows the arch at the Town Wall.

A third is a view which looks towards the Kirkham Hotel while the fourth shows boats by the waterside, undergoing repairs and painting.

Our thanks go to John for the contributions and we hope they inspire others to submit their own work.

You can do just that by emailing [email protected] with your images.
