    Are there pictures to buy of the local beach and park etc I am a manager of a care home and would like the residents to be able to take a trip down memory lane.

      Hi Amanda, I’ve checked with the team at the museum and they’ve said that if you contact them (phone or e-mail South Shields Museum on 0191 2115599, or e-mail info@southshieldsmuseum.org.uk) then they’ll arrange to supply you with some nice old images.
