  1. "Korky" was also my form teacher at Tapton in 1967. I never got the cane but a couple of my mates did, they didn't go back for seconds.As you correctly put it, a 5ft horror, but she got results. I think there should be more teachers like her in this day and age, she got respect and got the job done. Can you imagine some of todays young layabouts getting the cane off Korky, how degrading and embarrassing for them? I for one would pay good money to see that.
  2. Hi to anyone reading this. I must apologise for the long delayed reply. Hi Dave, I enjoyed browsing through your photos, brought back many varied memories of a much more innocent time. I was in the house of Osbourn for my sins. One or two teachers names have come to mind, Mr Douty, Mr O'keefe, Mr North (big cheese) Mrs Dixon, Mrs Tucker, Mr Peterkin and my personal favourite Miss Ash / Mrs Bedingfield. Hopefully someone out there will read this and maybe reply. Regards Chris
  3. Hi. Thanks for that, my parents used to own Bole Hill Service Station back when this picture was taken. If you have any more pics, mainly of BHSS I would love to see them. Regards Sixspeed.
  4. Does anyone out there have any photos of Northfield Road around the Punchbowl pub area taken during the mid to late 1960s?
  5. I grew up in Sheffield during the fantastic 1960s. I used to spend my Saturday mornings wandering from shop to shop, Walsh's, Cole Brothers and all the big stores and of course Redgates. Sadly I left Sheffield in 1973 (not by choice) I have'nt been back much since and I am curious to know which shops survived and which did'nt. Can anyone help?
  6. Hi. I am still trying to contact anyone who went to Tapton Secondary Modern School. I was a pupil there between 1966 and 1970. My first year teacher was Miss Ash/Mrs Beddingfield. If there is anyone out there who attended around that time please contact me.
  7. Hi. As a newcomer to this I am still feeling my way around. I was a pupil at Tapton Secondary Modern School between 1966 and 1970. My family and I moved away from Sheffield in 1973. I recently heard that Tapton School had closed/moved or was no longer a school, can anyone help with this? Also if you went to Tapton during that time I would love to hear from you.
  8. Hi. As a newcomer to this I am just feeling my way as yet. I was a resident of Sheffield until mid 1973 when my family moved away. I was a pupil at Tapton Secondary Modern School between 1966 and 1970, if anyone else was a pupil at that time I would love to hear from you. I heard a little while ago that Tapton had closed, can anyone confirm this?

      Has anyone read my previous comment or am I doing something wrong?
