  1. Can you remember the contours of the land Old rider , could the woods be behind the camera? In the photo' there is a path going off at an angle up hill to the left which could possibly be the one on the map going from the stream towards Holmhirst Farm which is shown on the map linked to by SteveHB . Is the stream you mention the one that goes underground in the sports ground on the modern map? If so it very nearly lines up with the one on the old map. I could be in the wrong place altogether mind, I can't see any field boundaries on maps that seem to match the photo'.. https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=17&lat=53.3463&lon=-1.4892&layers=6&b=7 EDIT : I see that the stream goes all the way to Archer Road on the 50's map ---- https://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/topic/4008-os-maps-of-sheffield-and-district-1950s-over-300-of-them/page/11/
  2. This one is after the building of the New Inn but it shows the lines of the old buildings. New map with old overlay. On the NLS site you can use the slider bottom left to alter the opacity of the overlay. https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=18&lat=53.3500&lon=-1.4283&layers=168&b=1
  3. 1854 /5 has Hare and Hounds Inn. https://www.old-maps.co.uk/#/Map/437830/383758/10/100391
  4. I used N.L.S. georeferenced maps to make my guess as to the location. I had the idea that the stream on the old map may be in the bottom of the valley on the photo'. I couldn't find anything conclusive though and of course if it is that location could it be facing the other way?
  5. I think this must be part of Camping Lane that has now gone. Looking at old and modern maps my best guess as to the modern location is near the bottom of Periwood Lane. I am probably miles off so would anyone knowing the area and contours of the land have a better idea. I think there was a stream in the valley bottom, I wonder if that is still open? EDIT - I have just found it on Picture Sheffield, "Date Period:1900-1919" https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/303159027009?ul_noapp=true
  6. I recently mistakenly " Upvoted" on my own post, I have now removed it and reacted to the post that it was intended for. I don't know what anyone else thinks but I would have thought perhaps it should not be possible to like / upvote your own post?
  7. Thanks Edmund , I just couldn't figure out where one could be on that photo'.
  8. This postcard on Ebay is labelled "Pinstone Street and Town Hall and Teachers College." I have never come across this college before so my question is where is the teachers college on this photo' , and does anyone have information about the place? Also do I see a push bike and sidecar or is it something else? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133044192085?ul_noapp=true
  9. Looking through forums and revue sites on the internet there are claims that the company now owning the brand has the Stanley Rogers cutlery made in China and / or Korea. I have not been able to verify this at the moment but if true it would be just another case of a multi-national company buying and then abusing a respected mark. There are also some claims of the modern Stanley Rogers stainless cutlery rusting after a short time, not something I have come across with cutlery but I have recently bought stainless sheet steel that was so badly made that it rusted in patches.
  10. That's one of Stanley Rogers patterns that is now re-produced by Replacements Ltd. Picture below is Lady Catherine pattern in silver plate.
  11. So, no connection there then? I must admit that I first typed it with a 'd' as in 'Joseph Rodgers' before I noticed it was Rogers.
  12. I should have noticed from the link I put on above that the Stanley Rogers brand is now owned and used by that company, Fackelmann Housewares, both UK and worldwide. ---------- https://www.fackelmann.com.sg/pages/our-brands
  13. From this New Zealand catalogue for 2019 -------http://www.fackelmannhousewares.co.nz/Brand/CataloguePDF?id=14 -------- "Stanley Rogers was a silversmith in Sheffield before moving to Australia in 1926." I am not sure if it was the same firm but I think there was a Stanley Rogers & (co., son or sons) on Rockingham Street, Sheffield in the 60's. It would be nice to hear that they are still going in Sheffield but I would be surprised because https://www.replacements.com/silver/snr.htm do replacement bits for their cutlery sets.
  14. The maps are interesting SteveHB , it looks like the road names moved around / changed. The maps made me wonder what it was like around the back so I had a nosey on Google. That is a place I have never been in Sheffield https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Marriott+Rd,+Sheffield/@53.3467606,-1.4950148,43a,35y,14.52h,44.99t/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x48798248dab5ca9d:0x4dbd7fee4db957c0!8m2!3d53.3465229!4d-1.4948353?hl=en
  15. Well nearly now, Google 2018, no exact dates for the older ones. Millhouses Hotel just visible to the right.
