The centre of Sunderland used to be located to the east of the present city centre, near to the docks. This area suffered a gradual decline over the years, but in more recent times many of the older buildings have been demolished and new developments have taken their place. Some of the original buildings have been restored, but most have gone, while some appear to be not long for this world.
