  1. The main function of the building was the railway offices of course. I was on a Manpower Services Commission (MSC) Work Experience Scheme with British Rail in 1977. I started in that building. Unfortunately nobody bothered to explain the scheme to the vast majority of the staff. This caused me lots of trouble, with staff thinking I was cheap labour. There was also an agency called "Manpower" and many staff confused the agency with the first name of the work scheme provider. I was paid an allowance of about £16 pounds a week for a 9 to 5 hours job. The scheme allowed me mostly to watch the job

  2. Old Maps did reply! They asked for the postcode! I gave them plenty of details when I first sent the request. It doesn't take to much effort to find Sheffield and then select the 1967 large scale map to soon see the blank sections! And it's the case that's it's not loading in, because you can see the watermarking of "old maps" on the white sections.
