Each of those worth it's own post and candidates for the next Calendar. Worthy of more details for every one of them - "all hands to the pump".

Thank you, once again.

The Old Crown, cant read the second name but it's Thomas E------

So here's a possible

Old Crown/Crown
133-137 London Road/Little Sheffield / Highfield
1879 Thomas Earnshaw

The entry for The Old Crown on London Road seems to confirm this is the right inn.

Here's another possible. The Old Crown , Grindle Gate.

Although it looks to be a definate E the last two letters look like ss rather than a w.
If that's the case it could be Thomas Furniss of the Old Crown Grindle Gate 1822-34.
the F looking like an E maybe.

But I don't suppose we'll ever know.

Just to add confusion. lol
Another possibility is that the "E" is a middle initial as in Thomas E Something

1850-1880 - not very precise.

Cheney Square

Somewhere there is a BBC painting of this; I updated them because they had the caption messed around with a view from the other side of the Church - one for the Link Fairies methinks ...

Found it ! hiding here

Well, I get excited about pictures of the cheese grater and Park Hill flats as I have posted a few of them in the past.

However, these old photos have a special charm of their own which modern pictures don't have, - YET!

Remember that if you want "Then & Now" photos for comparison it is vital that someone takes plenty of "now" photos now because today's "now" photos are tomorrows "then" photos, and as we have found out, good "then" photos are always in short supply as we can't go back in time and take a picture that never was taken at the "now" point in time.

I can't get my head round this picture of the old fish market.
Am I looking at the bottom of Waingate or is it somewhere else?

A version of this from the Independent, with text about the name/origins of the Square. (followed by RE leader's thoughts, also from the Independent):

That is the correct name for the area where the two trams are seen (L/H side),
I would say the photograph was taken from Walsh's building (John Walsh).

Does anyone remember THIS PLACE

It is on the library pictures as unknown and situation not known other than
Infirmary Road.

It was a Billiard Hall situated on the block after St Philips church going towards town.

I used to walk past it as a kid and if the doors were open you would see all the smoke
puthering out, probably Woodbines and Park Drives. he he
By brothers would get a ticking off if found that they had been in there.
