    The end of this youtube video there's a glimpse of the Goodwin fountain. Apologies if it's been shared before.

    If it looked anything like 1885 I'd visit town more often.

    Looking at it now you wouldn't think it's the same place.

    Sheffield Castle Excavations - Week 2

    Weren't the castle stones used to construct other buildings and bridges when it was demolished shortly after the civil war?

    Heppenstall Lane, Attercliffe

    Very unfortunate how Sheffield is panning out nowadays. Not only are we losing our heritage and historic buildings, Sheffield is looking bland and characterless unlike the past.
  16. Great looking postcard! Yeah, junction of Barnsley Road and Scott Road. Definitely prefer 1917 Scott Road to 2018. I like to walk through Burngreave cemetery but the Scott Road entrance is congregated by youths and unsavoury characters. They also hang about in the cemetery which creates an uneasy feeling.

    Can you do this?? Mobile phone users a challenge!!

    I do try although finding it difficult sometimes. I rarely us a computer as I browse the Internet and visit this fab forum using my mobile phone. But I can't use that as an excuse.

    Sheffield Buses 1980's

    I also remember when it was 2p when I went to Herries school and back. Then they changed the fare to 5p and SYT introduced those big square ticket machines instead of giving your money to the driver. They didn't seem to last very long as we used to grab plastic 5p money from our maths class or use washers the size of 5p back then to put in the ticket machine. That way we would have 5p spare at the end of school to buy a bag spice.
