  2. Hello All, I'm helping to stage an event on Saturday Dec 1st in conjunction with the University of Sheffield. It will cover a historical development of the modern street combined with rights and ownership issues raised recently in Sheffield after street protests. It's free entry and all welcome. https://sites.google.com/sheffield.ac.uk/shrg/on-the-streets-1-day-conference

    There are a couple on Picture Sheffield that show the right place. Not sure if blowing them up can shed any light? This one is from c.1900. http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s19365&pos=37&action=zoom&id=21908

    This morning on the side wall of the recent Nether Edge Post Office along Abbeydale Road appears evidence of an older Post Office.

    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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
