  1. Edwardian. Trams heading for Millhouses and Walkley.
  2. Where was this Sheffield photo taken?

    Certainly looks like it with the flats in the background.
  3. Walkling through the River Porter culverts

    I posted about Patrick a few weeks ago in the 'videos' section. Anyone know him? Certainly a character and I'd be happy to walk around with him!
  4. Drainspotting!

    The middle of the three 1890 examples only appears today dated from 1890 to 1892. I've often wondered why it was discontinued. There are a good few about, so they have lasted. However a different style was adopted after that by Sheffield Corporation.
  5. Ebenezer Elliott

    As far as I remember from my A Levels it was a protectionist measure taxing foreign corn to protect home grown crops. Therefore having the effect of keeping food prices high.
  6. Drainspotting!

    And yet all date from the same time. Any thoughts on the reason? Appreciate you reading the thread John, it's took me back a bit
  7. Sheffield Council plan to chop down around 30 trees along the road. They have been held up by protesters, including me.
  8. The Crimea Monument

    I care equally for both aspects of Sheffield's heritage.
  9. Hammerton Road Street Lamp

    Don't know of any still in existence. Were they doubling up as tram/coach stops?
  10. The Barrow Boys - Pub n Grub

    The entrance is still visible on Shude Hill under the bridge.
  11. Are you on here Patrick? Or does anyone know him? Several wonderful films on YouTube and I'd like to work with him! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCBf7ueZ55s&t=1438s
  12. There's a thread on here about the inspection covers. It was one of the first things I posted about. Maybe someone clever can post a link?
  13. I think there might be a couple but they are painted white. The one on Abbeydale Rd is pretty intact. It's before the big Tesco, on the left heading out of town.
  14. There are a few tramway poles around. One on Abbeydale Rd is in good condition. There are also scores of inspection covers in the pavement in various parts of the city including Rustlings Rd, South Rd, Crookes Rd and many more.
