Tyne Tees Run, South Shields 2009

Tyne Tees Run 2009

The 27th Annual Tyne Tees Run arrived at the Bents Park in South Shields yesterday with a huge collection of vintage vehicles on show, having driven the 50 miles from Teesside Leisure Park in Stockton to South Shields. There were parades along the way in Durham City, Chester-le-Street, Shiny Row, Roker, and Marsden.

One of my favourites in this collection, owned and operated by members of the Historic Commercial Vehicle Association, is the 1951 Merryweather fire tender which originally operated in the old South Shields County Borough Fire Brigade, it was also one of the very first pictures in this photoblog in August 2006.
