    Amazing photograph of Sheffield

    This could be the PEOPLES MARCH FOR JOBS which came through Sheffield 1982-3. I was on this along with other employees of Aurora Steels in Ecclesfield who joined the march at the junction of Ecclesfield Common and Nether Lane. The march started in the North East, and continued to the City Hall where Arthur Scargill spoke. The march then continued to London. It was a carbon copy of the Jarrow march.

    Queenies Fish and Chip Shop

    Just a thought, could there have been two names? The owner and the fish fryer. Lots of chippies have fryers who aren’t the owner.

    Giants on Fargate

    There are a couple of these at Kelham Island Ind. Museum. Saw them dancing at the Xmas market.

    Beer and steelworks

    A few of the steelworks had pubs built into them around Brightside/Attercliffe. The White Hart at Brown Baileys on Worksop Road was an example.

    Church Street, Ecclesfield - what do you remember?

    Looks like this was taken between the Griffin and Tankard (Stocks) pubs. There was a chippy on the left of this shot and a bookies on the right. Also on the left was a butcher/ fishmonger. Think it was Alan? That was in the seventies. Believe chippy is now a cafe.

    Stanley House

    Don’t know anything about the building but walked past it every day for two years whilst working on Wicker Lane.

    Queenies Fish and Chip Shop

    Wasn’t Queenies on Hartley Brook Road? Used to have half a cob (round loaf, not BBC) filled with chips for dinner whilst attending Hartley Brook in 1968.

    G.E.M. Stores on Attercliffe Common in the sixties, Marcway Models on Attercliffe Road in the seventies.

    Is this Sheffield High Street?

    This looks like the upper floors of the old Brunswick pub, a Whitbread house in the seventies. It was next to Etams on the Haymarket opposite Woolworths.

    I was only talking about this at work today. Whit Sun clothes which you then wore at school for the annual photo. We also had Whit Monday clothes.

    Alfred road Sheffield

    Was Alfred Road between Worksop Road and Staniforth Road? I’m sure I remember the street sign whilst walking from home on Titterton St to Darnell in the 60s.
  13. No, only there a short while but I’m certain the meat market still operated until the late seventies.

    Wasn’t there a clinic/dental surgery on Hatfield House Lane?
