    Out and about delivering flyers today I got to see round the back of properties along Abbeydale Rd. Always interesting for me. Henry White, Washington Rd. Darwin & Co, Queen's Foundry.

    Is this Sheffield High Street?

    Haymarket. Building still there.
  4. Watched this out of interest without knowing it was almost entirely set in Sheffield. Current MP Clive Betts is in it. Interesting piece of recent social history.
  5. Temporary arches were constructed around the city centre during royal visits in Victorian and Edwardian times. They look substantial but were only for the day.

    Was this building a court house?

    There is a very nice court building dated 1854 on Bank Street nearby. The area has been the centre of the law profession in Sheffield for at least 200 years. http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?action=zoomWindow&keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;u05798&prevUrl=

    Where is this?

    Well another great topic is revived! I lived in Peckham whilst at University many years ago too. Very interesting.

    Interactive map of today and yesterday

    Now that is fun!
  11. The slope of the road looks like where the Banner Cross is, but the buildings are different.

    Looks And Smiles

    Just watching this on YouTube. I thought knew Ken Loach's stuff, but this is new to me too. Great shots of the city - you'll find lots to like.

    Drinking Fountains

    There are the remains of one on Broad Lane in the city centre. They were ornate as well as functional, like so much else from the time.

    What was this please?/ Police Boxes

    Good stuff. Couldn't see what else it could be really, but that's what I was after. I've never seen it in any other photos of the area before. Cheers

    What was this please?/ Police Boxes

    I live round the corner from this 1955 view of Nether Edge. What was the hut on the left (top of Moncrieffe Rd at the junction with Montgomery Rd)?
