    If I remember right the ceiling was painted matt black with stars painted on to make it look as though you were outside..

    Coal men in Sheffield

    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 ?

    What do you remember about this Sheffield place?

    I have just walked away from the bus shelter, could not stand it for a minute longer. Women moaning about the bloody awful weather and leaking bus shelters, then there is a bloke in a Lavender coloured Triumph Herald sticking his head out of his car window complaining about some stuck up "toff" parking his jag on the wrong side of the road. Then I spotted Two more women heading for the bus shelter having just dodged a couple of low flying reindeer. I just thought "sod this" I am off, I have only got to walk to Wincobank, a brisk 10 minutes will do it..At least it will be quiet.
