  1. Pond Street Nora

    She would also walk about town, remember everyone looking round as she approached swearing loudly at all and sundry. Everyone who knocked about in town knew Nora as well as old Cyril the tramp
  2. Taggys Ice cream

    Memories, my Grandmother used to live on Heeley Green above the Victoria pub. When I was there on Saturday or Sunday my cousins and me would have Taggys. Brilliant ice cream
  3. Kaye Gee Bee

    Yes, I went a couple of times. They were ok
  4. Sheffield Abattoir, Cricket Inn Road

    My dad had a small shop and used to sell meat, he used to take me there to buy meat and then drop me off at school. Remember we used to get our Christmas turkey from there and had to pluck the thing. Feathers all over.
  5. Game of Thrones

    They are all very good but long and many more characters. I have read them twice and am now listening to the audio version while driving. Each time I hear something I missed previously.
  6. Game of Thrones

    Try reading the books, lots more characters and dialogue. If you don't like reading try listening to them on Audible. Roy Dotrice met with George Martin so they are read as Martin wanted. A lot of characters dead on the Tv show are still alive in the books.
  7. James Lodge Ltd, Solly St

    Made the best xylo handle knives in Sheffield. I have a dozen of those knives. Look as good now as when new
  8. John Biggin

    I used to do out work for John Biggin. Remember Mr Douglas who used to run the company for years. It was all moved to Roberts and Belks in the 1990s not nickel blanks as they were under the same ownership. The building is still there. They used to do some very high quality hotel cutlery for top hotels in London, Hilton, Grosvenor ect
