  1. Hi Edmund No nothing just the photograph. I do know that the man right at the back was a bricklayers labourer and bottom right there is a pile of bricks. This must have been one of the building sites that he worked on perhaps? Added a cleaned up version of the image for clarity
  2. Good afternoon everyone. I have an old original photograph (not a postcard) which i have attached and am hoping that someone could help with dating it please? I know that this is taken in Sheffield, but as to where i dont know. Any help would be much appreciated.

  4. Good evening all, Looking for information and an image (not holding my breath), of the BARRELL INN, Anson street sheffield which is the last road at the bottom of South Street, Park. Anyone got any information please?
  5. I believe that there is a group of individuals that are involved with keeping the history of the NGH and artifacts, past staff members etc who are based at Sheffield Teaching. I would contact the hospital direct and ask details of the group. They would be in a better position to help you perhaps?
  6. Good evening, In 1976 I worked at la capannina restaurant om Abbeydale Road. I remember the Chef was called Antonino (Nino) Accordino who would make me a creamy dish everynight before I started work. Does anyone remember this restaurant or Nino or anyone else who worked there. I also remember the two owners were a *** couple that lived in Dore. Anyone know if Nino is still in Sheffield or if he went back to Italy?
  7. I remember two flower sellers that stood under the underpass which goes from Angel Street to the Dove and rainbow pub. I think they were Father and Son but cannot be sure. I used to buy a bunch of flowers for my wife every Saturday 1980 ish. Does anyone remember these guys?
