  18. Great stuff! The Wilfred Ledger mentioned, was a distant ancestor of mine( 2nd cousin 4x removed), he was born Wilfred Henry Ledger in 1839 and was living on Broad Street with his parents in 1861, thanks for the link!!
  19. Just a thought, but could it be a Sunday School photo.?
  20. I used to graze a pony on the fields belonging to this property in the mid seventies when it was owned by a Mrs Spafford, rumour has it that her neighbour used to be a dancer in "Pans People", I believe the old park cottage, was where the Beauchief Tennis Club is today (if it's still there!!), there is a picture of the Old Cottage on Picture Sheffield.
  21. I used to live on Matlock Road so am pretty familiar with it, the back wall of the former buildings still exists and you can see blocked up doors and windows, from the pub car park.
