  1. They were both born in the same bed, Three years apart at 52, Andover Street Pitsmoor,
  2. Yes Sorry mate, it was 8 legs, I am surprised no one else noticed my deliberate mistake. lol..
  3. Ken Green on Spital Street was our local butcher, I remember once he was advertising Four Legs of Venison for £10. but dad said "it was too dear"
  4. Mother used to take us when I was a nipper, we walked over the little bridge on Nursery street and through the steel works to get there..
  5. Been in there a few times, and the Owl across the road...
  6. I wonder where the Two gate lamps ended up ? Land fill most likely. Shame..
  7. If I remember right the ceiling was painted matt black with stars painted on to make it look as though you were outside..
  8. I worked at Andrews Toledo's in the early 70's and sometimes nipped in the Victoria Hotel, aka "The Monkey". Now La Plata Monkey works..
  9. Hi, are there any maps showing the boundary line for Pitsmoor, or any other Sheffield district ?
  10. Hi, can anyone recommend a good paint stripper, I have to strip some wooden garden furniture I have tried some water based stuff but it's next to useless, a complete waste of time. It doe's not do as it say's on the tin..thanks in advance.....
  11. Not working, just say's the page you requested doe's not exist..
  12. I remember the coal man delivering in the late 50's / early 60's around Pitsmoor, Brunswick Road, Nottingham Street Marcus Street, Spital Street, area I think his yard was on Neville Street, but not sure. In fact I can still remember his face. He was a mate of my dad's, and sometimes my Brother and I would sit in the cab when he went around collecting his money. But for the life of me I can't remember his name and I don't have any photo's of him. I wonder if any one on here can remember his name or has any photo's ?
