FOUND in The Northern Echo archives are some really interesting pictures from the early days of Darlington's Skerne Park, a council estate planned in 1958 as a response to the post-war housing shortage.

Pictures of the Park are rare, but these show its earliest days – and weren't the original streetlamps, in the shape of a question mark, gorgeous?

If any of today's pictures trigger any thoughts or memories, or you can answer any of our questions or provide any further information, please do not hesitate to email chris.lloyd@nne.co.uk
