  1. At that time, High Storrs would have been the Central Technical School located on Leopold Street in the city centre
  2. I wonder if the TT accelerates faster than the older trams and where road drivers have been used to going thru 'just red' traffic lights and beating the tram these two have been 'caught' by the TT? Only a thought and may be completely wrong. As noted by ysander that 'the "experiment" being years behind schedule and £millions over budget' does rather make one wonder what to expect from HS2.
  3. Hi @boginspro, I saw that and wondered myself. Hopefully someone on here can provide an answer. @SteveHB, now you mention that, I remember the proposal but the letter infers that the 'large underground station' actually existed rather than being proposed. I wonder if it has something to do with any link between Midland stn and Victoria stn, didn't there used to be some goods terminal below Victoria (?) but I may well be completely wrong with that
  4. It's changed a bit but I think Snig Hill, same as RichardS
  5. I believe the Yorkshire Bank used to be the Yorkshire Penny Bank
  6. I don't know if they still do but I am sure I remember The Star (Sheffield Star) used to print an article giving full directions for a walk each week. There also used to be information in the notices section from the various rambling clubs about the walk(s) they would be doing the next weekend with time and place for meeting up.
  7. I missed your post, I need to go to Specsavers (other opticians are available) Many thanks for information, I have made a forward note in diary to try and remind me to look out for the next fair
  8. May be thinking of Hyde Park Dog Track. There was also a dog track (Darnall Stadium) at Acres Hill (I believe)
  9. Looks like it would have been great. However this is the first I have heard anything about it
  10. Many thanks for doing the leg work, it was the second of the two threads I was remembering.
  11. Not exactly 'quirky', there used to be a lot of police boxes around Sheffield (and painted this colour). I am sure I have seen another thread on here with information about these police boxes, I will have a look round later.
  12. I knew it as Black Swan and the nickname of the mucky duck
  13. Was the 'pub/club' underneath the bridge The Barrow Boys, open early for the market workers? Great video by the way.
