  1. It might have been a Lantern slide at one time.

  2. Take a good look at the accompanying photo of a horse and carriage on Surrey Street, the horses, carriage, people looking look strangely very sharp focus, strange shadows from the onlookers, the carriage but the two leading horses are bereft of shadows. The surrounding street isn’t as sharp , the spare land on the left is lacking contrast as are the buildings on what was Fargate in the distance, seems this photo has been more constructed that just taken. The gas lamps are just paper cutouts by the look of them. Any one see what I see?

  4. AS Lysanderix points out above, there wouldn't have been a Vickers Pals Btn on it's own.

  5. Hi, His service records are on ancestry - have you got them? I can't find anywhere with a photo though . I have had a look in Sheffield 1918 newspapers but they only give his obituary but no photo. Best wishes, John

  6. I did a cropped down version of this view, Mama and Leonies allowed me to use one of their windows. Pity about the tree blocking the view point.

  7. That quote was taken from Wikipedia. However it was the first British Tour of 1965. They had their first ever shows in the UK in 1963. They had four tours in 1964 of the UK. The record advert was for the second tour which ended in March.

  8. When lived in Eckington it was a well known fact that Mick Jagger was a regular visitor to the village so as to see his Grandma who lived there. Out of respect to the lady his visits were “kept under the hat”.

  9. I used to be a great fan of my home town but, sadly nowadays ,I reckon Leeds centre beats it hands down. I can only hope that recent developments on the Moor redresses things. We do have some excellent parts of town for eating and drinking…..and I am too long in the tooth for nightlife these days so I can’t comment…but my Grandkids seem to have a good time “ night raking”. ( I wonder if that expression had something to do with night soil?)

  10. Good call boginspro! That would bring back some fond memories of my time attending night school classes at the old College of Technology on Tudor Way (previously Arundel Street) The plumbing workshop didn't have anywhere to mash, the tutor would allow us out two at a time to take our 10 minute break at the Adelphi, remember Elvis always playing on the jukebox, we'd make jokes about it, Elvis being so uncool to teenagers in 64.
