    Archives and Local Studies staff had an extremely successful day at the auction of the Tim Hale Photographic Collection yesterday. Thanks to generous public donations together with support from the Graves Trust we saved over 2,000 cards for Picture Sheffield. We secured a fantastic range of subjects including street scenes, sport, hospitals, pubs, transport, temperance, industry, Sheffield greetings cards, local elections, advertising, early aviation, World War I, schools and theatres, and many more. We’ll be sorting through the photographs over the coming weeks - watch out for them on www.picturesheffield.com. We’ll also be arranging a display in the Central Library later in the year. Thanks again for all your support! Peter Evans Archives and Heritage Manager

    A huge thank you to everyone who donated to our emergency appeal to raise funds to save as much of the Tim Hale Photographic Collection as we can for Picture Sheffield. The response to the appeal has been amazing, raising several thousand pounds in just a matter of days. We hope to buy at least some of the collection at the auction and make it available for everyone to see on Picture Sheffield. Thank you once again. Peter Evans Archives and Local Studies Manager

    Good luck with it, I look forward to seeing it, I really like then and now images, many areas of Sheffield have changed so much and so many times.

    If it's not for profit and you credit Google I think you are OK but check here for the full terms. ---- https://www.google.com/permissions/geoguidelines/

    It certainly has changed, even in my time, I had a look on Google Street View but couldn’t recognise much other than St. Mary's. I will be very interested to see the modern photo's. Have you seen Patrick Dickinson "Walking Through the River Porter Culverts" on YouTube, I haven't time to look at it again at the moment but he must have gone through that one.
