Grantham’s, the Empire and the public market. They were all part of Hartlepool’s past.

Did you love a trip to the market or to one of the stores, such as Rowland’s? What do you remember buying?

What about Woolworths, Hardy or Lamb’s? Who remembers paying a visit to these Hartlepool favourites?

And who remembers the days of live entertainment at the Empire?

Would you love a return to those days when Lynn Street was a thriving centre?
