    Pinstone Street and Sheffield Town Hall 1902

    Pinstone Street bus stop and shelters Anyone remember it like this?

    The Fiesta nightclub Sheffield

    Hardly surprising missed one more act we saw at the Fiesta, after all week after week the acts were changed so you knew who was coming up. So missed: * The Tremeloes Thinking back all those years we were really blessed the Fiesta being so close to Clay Cross with the quality of the entertainment totally exceptional . All memorable all different but for us the 3 standouts had to be Roy Orbison, The Four Tops, and Gladys Knight & The Pips. Now at the bottom of the spectrum for us the most disappointing was Gene Pitney but there again it is all relative and taste. Brenda Lee would be a close second.

    Sheffield - A City In Lockdown

    Hi! I’m new to this website so I apologise if I’m using it incorrectly but I’ve got a question and really hoping I’ll find an answer! But when I was younger around early 00’s there was always a club that would fascinate me on west street and whenever driving past I would always say to my dad “I’ll go there when I’m older” unfortunately it changed to west street live before I turned 18. All I can remember is it was yellow on the outside and had disco coloured lights, could anyone please tell me the name of the club or even better any photos? It’s been one of those questions ive never had an answer to for many years ☺️ Thank you.

    Thats brilliant, thanks Edmund. I understand the word 'Lee' comes from the word 'Leah' meaning a clearing or meadow.
  12. A thread about the LYCEUM THEATRE on Pond Hill in Sheffield City Centre. I don't know too much/anything about this pub so need your help. What was it like? What used to be on either side of it? Looks like it was demolished to make way for the new general post office building?

    Cremorne, Origin Of The Name ?

    Advert from 21 May 1863 - the Cremorne Gardens, in full swing. Complete with a boneless gorilla! Spare a thought for poor Madame Geneive (real name Selina Powell, the ‘Female Blondin’). Elevated SIXTY FEET on a High Rope, blindfolded, in a sack, her feet in baskets, surrounded by fireworks, not to mention five months pregnant and compelled to work to financially support seven children, her husband and her mother! Two months later she was dead - you guessed it - due to a fall from the high wire at Aston Park. And I thought my life was hard!
  22. CLUB UROPA NIGHTCLUB IN SHEFFIELD CITY CENTRE Not sure I ever went in here when it was open so going to need some help from you nightclubbers out there in Sheffield! Club Uropa was situated in the old Isabellas Nightclub location on Eyre Street, just round the corner from PLUG nightclub and live music venue. Did you used to go to Uropa Nightclub? Let us know your memories below and any photos would be really welcome too!

    Sidney Street

    Forgot to add, while Agnes Henderson (nee Hengler) was lodging on Sidney Street in 1861, her equestrian brother John Michael Hengler is lodging at 99 Duke Street, alongside John Henry Cooke (1836-1917), who would be billed as ‘the Champion Equestrian of the Universe’, born in New York.
  25. I could never understand, in fact I still don’t, as to why the council allowed the destruction of all the old Victorian shops on Pinstone Street including the Cambridge Arcade, then add insult to injury allow the horrible buildings that were put up in their place. Thanks to picture Sheffield.
  26. I quite frequently used my travel pass ( when rail was included) and go up to Leeds....a City which I disliked purely on a "tribal" basis! I was always impressed by their shopping areas and the range of outlets, interesting snickets and the general ambience of the place. I remember the days when our City proudly proclaimed its merits as a shopping and entertainments centre. Apart from de-industrialisation ( which Leeds also suffered) what went wrong?
