  12. If the accompanying text to the photo is correct "Workman's Boarding House No. 78, 80, 82, Pond Street. Court No. 10, at rear, left"? Then I would say, those are not the steps that lead to the Lyceum, this map 'circa 1891' shows court No.10 Pond Street, I have also marked the steps in question. https://www.old-maps.co.uk/index.html#/Map/435699/386820/13/100453 White's Click to choose files directory, published 1901.

  15. And this topic. "Tenancy agreement TT/128/13 31 Jan 1855 Contents: The Trustees, as landlords, to William Whitmarsh, of Sheffield, common brewer, tenant. A beerhouse called 'The California Tap' near Lady's Bridge, late the property of Andrew Ingleson, decd. From year to year. Rent of £8 15s. per quarter. Memorandum that Mary Ann Whitaker, widow, took the tenancy on 12 July 1856."
  16. Sorry no photo. Today at Heeley City Farm Repair Cafe I was talking with SH member andy1702, along came a local lady who asked if Calvin or himself would have any information regarding a named oblong (star pattern) drain cover that she had found within the area of her property in Heeley. There did not seem to be any info regarding a "Wm Bush" in their book Drainspotting, or in this topic, so I had a look through the directories. Bush Wm. mason and bricklayer, 47 Radford Place, White's directory, 1879. Bush Wm. & Sons Ltd. builders, 97 Gell Street, Kelly's directory, 1925.
