    Believe the houses on the right are pretty much as was. The clubs and kfc would now appear on your left.

    The Hallam Tower Hotel in Sheffield

    I believe it was so modern / hi-tec when first built it was used as the setting for an advert for a new Ford Motor Car.

    Sheffield photographs by Bill Stephenson

    These are fantastic I’ve never heard of the fella - they should be published.
  6. I still agree - don’t think it needs 3 separate ones for pubs, restaurants and nightclubs. or 2 for cinema and movies etc.

    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.

    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!
  10. 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?

    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.

    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.
