  1. Sheffield Wednesday 1966 Cup Final Team

    Wednesday played in white shirts because Everton wore Royal blue shirts and were alphabetically preferred to wear their home colours.
  2. I worked there for a short time in 1972 in the meat market as a porter. A real eye opener for a fifteen year old. Handling lights and plucks and freshly slaughtered sides of pork.
  3. The Toff of Sheffield

    My Grandparents often mentioned The Duke of Darnell dressed in evening wear.
  4. Beer prices in 1971..

    Guinness is only 16p for draught! Remember these prices and most of the drinks
  5. Extinct Sheffield Food Brands

    Hulley’s ice cream was based on Cross Hill in Ecclesfield. Also, wasn’t there a Rawson’s ales locally?
  6. Hendersons Relish

    Why would you need to buy more than a week’s supply anyway?
  7. Is it 12 Clapham Yard?
  8. The number 52 to Crookes

    Is the car furthest away a Morris Marina?
  9. Threads

    The pub scene where Jimmy is having a conversation was filmed at Nottingham House above the children’s hospital. I remember seeing the pub name etched in the window glass.
  10. SUGG SPORT on Pinstone Street

    Barney Goodman was famed for his De Mob suits for service men. About 50 shillings I believe.
  11. SUGG SPORT on Pinstone Street

    There was a barbers shop down the arcade on the right. Had a David Bowie haircut there; think it was called Sweeny Todd’s.
  12. Female impersonators

    Don’t know the “Barry” but I’ve been trying to remember Tony White’s surname for months. Used to compere at the Fiesta when Marti Caine and Knutty were on. Thanks.
  13. Beagling

    There was a pack of hounds in kennels behind Ecclesfield shooting range which was behind the houses above the Griffin pub. We used to fire air rifles there in the seventies. Definitely Beagle hounds housed there. Saw rats as big as cats there. Heard that the dogs were fed on stil born calves from the butchers on the corner of Feoffes Rd by the church
  14. Question regarding the old town hall and courts

    It was a Crown Court in the eighties. Remember going with Stannington college on a free period during 1983 for the experience. Think it must have changed when the new courts opened opposite Whitbreads brewery.
  15. Sheffield Student Rag Parade

    The Twicker Rag Mag. Named after t’Wicker, weer t’watter runs ovver t’weir.
