JOIN us on another trip back through time - this week to December 1989.

These pictures provide a nostalgic look back at life and fashions of the time and include funny man Russ Abbott during a visit to Southampton General Hospital. He was in the city to star in the panto of Jack and the Beanstalk.

While the events pictured were taking place, this is what was happening nationally:
