  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.
  3. Thanks for the reply. I have attached the article to this post from 1898 for your perusal, its the only info i have.
  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?
  8. Morning all, I am looking for a map that shows 3 court & 4 court Stafford Street Sheffield if anyone can oblige please? Thanks
  9. Mmmm interesting that there is an addeys street and the same name of buildings on Adelphi Street. Obviously there is a connection somewhere?
  10. Did the fire insurance maps cover this area?
  11. So, we ca So, i think we can safely say that Addeys Fields was on Adelphi Street then, fantastic (i love this website). Now has anyone got a map of Adelphi street showing the house numbers from circa 1880 please?
  12. Yes it's Addeys Fields for sure, but i have never come across this but i have Nether Hallam? So, addeys fields must be somewhere in Nether Hallam, is it not?
  13. Good Afternoon everyone, Just got a birth certificate and the place of birth is ! "Addys Fields" and this is something that i have never heard of. Can anyone enlighten me and give me some idea of where this was in Sheffield please? If possible a map of the area would be very appreciated.
  14. It was a COMET retail store aswell in the 80s. I remember driving a Sinclair C5 out of there and around the one way system
  15. Thats the one. Do you know if the records are searchable after 1910 or are being transcribed? I ask because the year i need is1921
  16. The link above has stopped working? Does anyone know where it has been moved to please?
  17. Afternoon everyone, I am struggling to find out what the cause of death is on the image attached. And also, what exactly is the illness please? Many thanks
  18. So, if you count as Mates Square it would mean that there was not a number 19 and out of the court to number 20?
  19. Image attached - I think this is 1 house court 4 River Lane
  20. Hugh, the three children are my relatives but i would be very interested in seeing the five baptisms please. I only have James, Thomas & Michael born there, so another two would be a bonus. James May and Mary Murphy are my GG Grand parents. James is first seen in Sheffield in 1875 when he marries Mary at St Maries, before this James is very elusive. Born Ireland 1849 and thats all i have. Boginspro, There is certainly house numbers on the certificates so there must have been house numbers, but as to which way they were on the Fire Certificate map is debatable. Although it would be nice to know as the picture Sheffield image could be my ancesters actual house? Also, thanks for the links they are brill
  21. Hello Mr Longden, Thats a great help, although i wish we could determine which dwelling was number 1. I wonder if anyone can help with which way the numbers would have gone?
  22. Yes i dont know when it went and i cant find a map showing the houses on the lane, although there are images on Picture Sheffield, but dont help my plight i am afraid!
  23. Evening all, Not sure that i have posted this in the correct place, but here goes. I am looking at one of my ancestors and have discovered that he lived at 4 ct River Lane, about 1886 to 1888 Sheffield which was near the Midland Railway Station (as far as i can gather)? Anyway, it seems that whilst living at this address he had three of his sons die as the death certificates say that 4ct River lane is place of death of these children. One of the deaths in 1886 and two in 1888, but i have also found a death at the same address for a Mary Rogers in Aug 1888 whilst my ancestor Mr May was living there with his wife who has a different maiden name to Mary Rodgers. So, my questions are: 1. How can i find out who lived in this house at this time? (census does not tell me anything) 2. Was the house a B&B type house where more than one family lived or similar to a work house, maybe? 3. The three children are buried in a different grave from Mary so perhaps not related? 4. Or, have i missed something and not seeing it? Please help if possible Thanks
