The old town hall is another place which has really lost its sparkle over the last couple of years. It used to be a place where I'd go with my parents as a kiddie, savaloy in hand, I'd chase the pigeons then buy some mishapen sweets from the market. Now the market is virtually non-existent and S Shields is fast becoming a ghost town, I find the whole place quite sad and tend to avoid the place unless needs must. I doubt it will ever be restored to its former glory. Still the place has some good memories for me and it is one of last remaining bit of Auld South Shields.
