It's all thanks to Ron Lawson, the former JP, who is also part of the Sunderland Antiquarian Society and has shared some of his huge selection of photos.

This is the second of three photo spreads on Bishopwearmouth, so many pubs in the area.

Ron thanks again for another great feature from his own archive of 11,500 photos.

To learn more about the history of Sunderland, the company's headquarters are open in Douro Terrace on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:30 to 12:00.
