    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.

    Hello All, I'm delighted to say that I have been shortlisted for European Heritage Storyteller of the Year for 'Drainspotting'. The link here is the just published submission which formed the final part of the process. There are now just 20 stories left in the contest (of which I am one) and the final 10 are announced later this month. Hopefully there will more updates to follow but thank you very much to all the people who contributed to this long running thread which was part of my story and supporting evidence https://www.europeanheritagedays.com/Story/cfbd0/Drainspotting-%40%40%40-A-European-Story%2c-Made-in-Sheffield^^^

    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.

    Agnes Henderson (Sidney Street 1861) - her maiden name was Agnes Hengler, from the family of the popular Hengler’s Circus, who made frequent visits to Sheffield. Hengler’s suffered a tragedy here in Agnes’ lifetime - in 1872 when a gallery (for spectators) fell. See fascinating extract from https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=p5wMYvBVGgIC&printsec=frontcover&dq=The+circus+and+Victorian+society&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwinqsLE6ufpAhVdSBUIHSA7DvIQ6AEIJTAA#v=onepage&q=The circus and Victorian society&f=false
