    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.

    Which shop was better for Airfix models?

    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.
  8. No, only there a short while but I’m certain the meat market still operated until the late seventies.

    I thought Beaver Hill was at Handsworth?

    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.
  12. 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.

    My Grandparents often mentioned The Duke of Darnell dressed in evening wear.

    Extinct Sheffield Food Brands

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