    The site today and the first customer waiting for it to open.
  2. Before John Lewis in Barkers Pool

    Are they queuing for cigarettes or something else?

  6. Toll Gate pub, Pitsmoor.

    This was my local for many years. There was a bunch of us who always sat near to the pinball machine. Mick and Pete Dobson and Dave Baker were just a few of "our gang". The table next to the jukebox was always occupied by by a different "gang". Gripper and Alan Bailey spring to mind. The days spent in there were some of the happiest times of my life.
  7. Old Sheffield Shops...

    The job had its ups and downs.

    The good old days
  10. Chapeltown

    I lived in Chapeltown flats up until about 1984. Me and my mate got banned from the Carousel for drinking cans of lager after time had been called on a Sunday afternoon.

    Here are some pictures of the old Chapeltown station before they moved it a couple of hundred metres nearer to the centre of Chapeltown. It is now at the side of the Asda. More pictures can be found here
