  2. Not like you, Neil, to start a thread that would have the inevitable response then be upset about getting exactly that response 😉

  4. The restaurant at the junction of Harmer Lane and Pond St was a Civic Restaurant, one of several in the city built during WWII to provide cheap, nourishing meals "for the workers". I recall going there with my mother in what would have been 1946/47 and enjoying such "treats" as brown windsor soup. Another was later to become the car tax office in Eyre St near the Graves Art Gallery and there was one at the top of Boston St/London Road. Another was opposite the back of the City Hall in Holly Green. There must be many memories associated with these places. I don't recall the rest of that triangle being a timber yard. I rather recall it as something of a steel works. But I can not be sure. The piece of land shown as a car park remained an unsurfaced car park for several decades. I always had the impression it was a bomb-site. Across Pond St was another bomb-site surrounded for many years by tall hoardings. It then got swallowed up the the never ending expansion of the College of Technology/Polytechnic/Hallam University.

  7. Just found this picture of the Albert Hall amongst my mother-in-laws old photos - it says it was taken just after the fire
