THE Daily Echo takes another glance back through time - this week to March 1999.

As can be seen in these images, local photographers were busy taking pictures of sport groups as well as children enjoying Easter.

One picture depicts Saints star Matt Le Tissier posing with Tanner’s Brook students outside Woolworths in Shirley. The school were donated sports kits by the store.
