    Middlewood Hospital

    As a child I lived near Middlewood Hospital. I remember the alarm sounding when an inmate of the hospital escaped. I remember the big gates with a gatekeeper's lodge past the tram terminus but did not know of any other entrance to the hospital. I also remember the fields on the side of the road where the Winn Gardens estate is. I was told that the men who worked in those fields were inmates of Middlewood Hospital. As a child I learnt not to tell others I lived at Middlewood because I would get teased about it. I found out about Wharncliffe Hospital when my Aunt Miss Buckle had a second stroke and was in Warncliffe unconscious for 6 months before she died. Miss Buckle may be known to other readers as she had been Head Mistress of Woodseats school and later on Sharrow Lane School.

    Sheffield Victoria Train Station

    By comparison with the Midland the Vic had a ticket area which was spacious and quite modern...unlike the former which always seemed as if "run down" was the norm...perhaps that because it was once a part of the "Long, Meandering and Slow Railway"!
  14. Sheffield Wednesday's open top bus parade through Sheffield having won the FA Cup at Wembley Stadium
  15. Sheffield Wednesday's open top bus drive through Sheffield having returned to the city in 1966 having lost to Everton in the cup final at Wembley. What street is this? At first I thought High Street but can't be that..

    Maleham & Yeomans

    In Geoff Tweedale’s book he states both George Edgar Maleham and Thomas Shillitoe we’re living on Daniel hill with Thomas’s father in 1871, he goes on to say they both lived on Victoria Road but they could have been living at No’s 49 George and Thomas at No 51, even though George is listed at No 43, but nowhere does it mention marriage for either of them. Wasn’t Henry Maleham the Gunsmith?
