  1. Zoom in on this photo and see how many different things and places you can identify from this Sheffield scene. What is still left? What are we looking at? Where will this have been taken from?
  2. Zoom in on this Sheffield photo. Do you recognise where it was taken (or even better recognise anyone in the photo!) ?

  5. This should interest any Sheffield person reading this website. A fantastic set of George Cunningham prints of Sheffield scenes are available on Ebay for anyone who fancies this art on their walls. The artwork shows Sheffield landmarks such as Wicker Arches, The Lyceum Theatre and more - have a look for yourself here : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/George-Cunningham-Set-of-6-Sheffield-prints-/232270725427?hash=item36146a0133:g:l9QAAOSwajVURS7U I think these look terrific so have ordered a set What do you think? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/George-Cunningham-Set-of-6-Sheffield-prints-/232270725427?hash=item36146a0133:g:l9QAAOSwajVURS7U
  6. The Great Central Railway Disaster at Woodhouse Sheffield

    Thirty miles an hour doesn't seem that fast a speed for such a disaster
  7. Life in Sheffield in the 1980's

    Have a look at these photos of Sheffield from the 1980's - what do you remember about life in the city back then?
  8. I've never seen this before so thought I'd post it and find out some information from people with memories and knowledge (way more fun than using google!) This is a postcard showing the Railway Express Disaster at Woodhouse on February 29th 1908. Question is what happened, what caused it, and what are the main points of this terrible day? Also if anyone would like to purchase the postcard it's on Ebay here - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Woodhouse-near-Sheffield-Great-Central-Railway-Disaster-1908-by-Cox-/391597348699?hash=item5b2d05575b:g:xwMAAOSwOyJX8mlV
  9. A very unique looking building this one but where is it and what do we know about it?
  10. Copy of the Sheffield & Rotherham Independent Newspaper up for grabs on Ebay currently Amazing - from February 1841!! It's currently in the USA though and the seller won't ship to the UK :(
  11. Hammerton Road Street Lamp

    Not seen this scene before and not seen a street lamp with a street name written upon it. Was that a regular thing that happened?
  12. The Bull and Mouth on Waingate
