My grandson and I have a growing collection of penkives, many of which are of Sheffield origin. As we are researching them, we have been posting images on the made in sheffield threads, and have been recieving lots of interesting replies (thankyou to members who have taken the time to help us out). most of these images will already have been posted, but I thought it might be of general interest to members and guests to gather them together in one place, so please browse and enjoy. zorro.
The White house was, for many years a fish and chip shop in Pitsmoor, now it is a residence. I'd like to find out exactly how old this building is. Local heresay claims it is Tudor, and at some time was a coaching inn. But contradictory evidence claims it is 19th century. Whatever the case, locals thought it was a listed building, but it turns out it's not. Anything could happen to this fine building, if we could determine it's history we could get it listed. Can anyone help us?
