Were you a regular visitor to Woolworths in town?

So we’ve had a browse through our picture archive and found some smashing photographs of shopping in Hartlepool over the years.

Binns, Woolworths, Marks and Spencer, Mothercare and the opening of Middleton Grange - we had it all in the town!

Flick through our picture gallery above and see if you can spot anyone you know.
