With Christmas around the corner, Norwich shoppers are out in force at this time of the year.
On Black Friday, many flocked to the city centre to make the most of the sales and grab some bargain gifts.
But the number of people in the city centre today is a far cry from the days before online shopping and the coronavirus pandemic - which led to the closure of many high street retailers.
Topshop, Debenhams, Cath Kidston and Game are some of the most recent losses in the city.
We have looked through our archives and gathered photos of London Street, Gentleman's Walk, St Stephen's Street, Castle Mall and Rampant Horse Street over the past few decades - which show just how much our shopping habits have changed.
