  1. I have access to some old photo's related to transport in Sheffield. These were in a pack and look like all from same sequence - they all have the same stamp on the back, one has "Sheffield Transport" written in pencil on the back. They could be from Queens Road but that is little more than an educated guess The last image piqued my interest. It has what looks like a mini version Tower of London at the back.

  2. In it's application for licence it was stated to contain "46 bedrooms and on the first floor were commercial, dining, smoking, and coffee rooms, and on the ground floor a first-class luncheon bar had been fitted up. The furniture and fittings of the house were of a most superior character and had cost £3,500. The site had cost £3,400, the building £5,000."

  3. There were two Imperial Hotels in Sheffield in 1897, though your artefact does refer to the one on Castle Street. It was a relatively short lived establishment, first licensed in 1874 as a "first class hotel". During WWI it was used (and seemingly taken over) by the Ministry of Munitions. The licence was not renewed in 1918 after it had ceased to operate as a licensed premises in September 1917.

  7. It must be Sheffield Transport canteen on Castlegate, I had many meals in there, but over 40/50 years ago, those ladies cooked some fine food but non of the modern foreign stuff.

  8. OK not strictly buses/trams, here are a couple of photos from a large transport archive showing inspection of a taxi at East Bank Garage following a collision in 1965. They are Sheffield Transport originals so a record of the incident. Also text from rear. Hope they may be of interest.
