COME with us on another trip down memory lane as we take a look at a selection of pictures from April 1970.

Some of the images show youngsters enjoying a football tournament at Southampton Sports Centre while on their Easter break. Large crowds gathered to watch the action from the grass banks at the side playing field.

Another set of photographs were taken at the Canine Association dog show. Proud owners posed alongside their pretty pooches, each of them hopeful to pick up a prize.

While the events depicted were taking place, this is what was unfolding nationally:
