  1. Greasy Vera's Cafe in Sheffield

    I remember playing about around Greasy Vera's truck back in the 80s as I lived on Bye Bank. It's was located near the bottom of pitsmoor road heading towards the city centre.
  2. Sheffield Tram Ride Through Attercliffe in 1960

    Love watching this video, watched it many times. Even made a comment on there 5 months back? Living in Darnall I wish Attercliffe Road was still like that.
  3. I vaguely remember it, walking passed it when going shopping with my mum. When was it demolished?
  4. Hi, I know AbdulWahab Saroori but I haven't seen him in many years. Not sure if he's passed away or moved to another area. Being half Yemeni myself I do have links to the yemeni community. I will inquire about him and his son and hopefully get some information for you.
  5. I've seen this picture a few times before, always found fascinating and intriguing. I'm curious to know exactly where it stood.
  6. Bottom of Pye bank road.
  7. The whereabouts looks to be somewhere between 30 and 38 Fargate. I can remember a Clarks being around there.
  8. Anyone Else Stuck In The 80's?

    I'm on my second pair of Samba's. Quality trainers. I couldn't agree more. My wife thinks I'm still stuck in the 80s.
  9. I loved sherbet in a paper bag with a straw coming out of Nether Green Junior school back in the 70's.
  10. Are the following Pubs still open ?

    I used to live next to the Fox and Duck on Pye bank. I can remember it been very busy during the 80's. Loved their firework display on bomb fire night. I think it closed down sometime in the 90's. Now demolished.
