  1. Here is a picture of my mother (far left) taken sometime probably in the late 80s or early 90s with a group of her work colleges at Sheffield Smelting Company. I have no idea who the others in the photo are and I cant ask my mum because she died in 2004. I wonder if any of the others are still with us.

    Before John Lewis in Barkers Pool

    I wonder how many holes you could have got in there to fill it.

    Anyone remember this? Did you join the queue?

    Are they queuing for cigarettes or something else?

    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.

    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.

    Sheffield's Railway Stations

    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
