  1. I still agree - don’t think it needs 3 separate ones for pubs, restaurants and nightclubs. or 2 for cinema and movies etc.
  2. Sheffield Miners Strike of 1984

    The lady at the back centre in the top picture is my mother-in-law.
  3. Berlins - bar and nightspot on Eyre Street

    They used to have a spin the wheel game which set the drinks offers for the next 30mins or something like that. the place is still in use as a nightclub called code i think.
  4. SUGG SPORT on Pinstone Street

    I loved Suggs when I was a kid in the 80s. My dad used to take me in and we used to look at the kits and the boots and that. got my first pair of boots in there and my dad bought me some dubbin to go with them!
  5. Wow I never knew that’s what it looked like down there - I assume the roundabout sits on top of where these shops were? What other shops were there - was there a pub?
  6. Black Cat on City Road

    The building is still there isn’t it? is it the one opposite st Aidan’s church which is now a church? didnt it have something to do with Peter stringfellow
  7. Herol 'Bomber' Graham

    He used to come into limpsfield school in the late 80s with Johnny nelson and do skipping exhibitions etc. We were all star struck because he was well known around sheffield back then.
  8. The number 52 to Crookes

    It’s not the 70’s you can tell by the cars and the bus. i would say more like early 90s.
  9. The Nelson at Moorhead in Sheffield City Centre

    I believe it was a bit of a rough hole and someone was stabbed in there at one point?
  10. The Bull and Mouth on Waingate

    Yes - used to be called the Boulogne in the 80’s maybe earlier.
  11. Which pub did you first get served in?!

    The first pub I was served in in town was the Tin Pan Alley which was roughly where vodka revolution is now. 5 of us went and 3 of us got in - once we were in we knew we'd get served so we were well pleased - would have been about 16/17
  12. I just wondered if there was one or two many thread categories? it sort of dilutes the posts across a large number of areas and maybe if the posts were more concentrated it may encourage more contribution / discussion. just a thought - keep up the good work.
  13. I went there between 86-89 - Mrs Drabble was the headteacher then.
  14. Brightside

    The gun defences were on the waste ground adjacent ridge view - I think more houses have been built on that land now.
