  1. How about one in the shape of a large barrel of beer.
  2. I have 3 spectrums,laptop with Windows 7,laptop with Vista, computer with 2000,computer with 97, computer with ME, 2 computers with XP and computer with 3.5.
  3. Very expensive way of getting lots of the information that is already on this site but maybe the closing dates are of interest. Register-of-Beerhouse-Keepers--Word--1-08-MB-.doc
  4. One at the bottom of East Bank Rd , diagonally opposite the casino.
  5. I used to get in free as I worked at The Heartbeat .
  6. 36 Trippett Lane is The Cubana Bar. Will have to look into this more.
  7. Sorry, thats all Ive got, Its a scan of a photocopy. Also someone has drawn in the position of some of the roads where they are now.
  8. Dont know whether this map is already on the site but cannot see it. A bit of stitching work for Steve .
  9. Ann Flynne ,the landlady of The Dog and Partridge owns The Grapes. She wanted to buy The Dog but was priced out. Because of this she is now moving all the effects from The Dog, lock stock and barrel into the Grapes and turning it into an Irish pub. Fidelma Candon, who is the manager of The Three Tuns,will also be managing The Dog as well.She will be running it as a real ale pub with modern Irish and British folk music.
  10. The old grey matter must be failing, Steve. Some of the photos are of The Brown Cow but others are of The Alex. I will have to have an expedition to see.
  11. http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/opendata/viewer/ Seems to work.
  12. Ordnance Survey is now free. http://news.bbc.co.u...ogy/8597779.stm
  13. Is anyone doing anything about sorting these problems out? Cannot now navigate the pub pages.I am trying to post more pictures but cannot find anything. Why was the site changed?
  14. The rest of the postcards are from somewhere between 1901 and 1911 so possibly could be 50th anniversary.
  15. Thanks dunsbyowl.The picture can now be posted in its proper place.
  16. The road name looks like Washford Road.Possibly opposite The Washford.
  17. http://www.youtube.com/profile?gl=US&u...u/8/WZeZg9FUH_c A few short films on Youtube
  18. On the back of the exhibition we have been loaned an album of postcards of Sheffield which will be appearing on facebook over the next few months.Some very good old photos of pubs are to be on it, some of which I cannot find in your records.When I have found more details I will post .
  19. I used to have a copy of Kellys 1839 which I lent out and never got back. It said there was a coal mine at the top of West Street. Normally you can tell where a pit used to be because of an open area of land but I cannot think of one on West Street.
  20. Brilliant! I have had a little play with your int.map and it seems to work perfectly.Well done and thanks,Jeremy and Stuart 0742.
