  7. Not a criticism at all ,Richard. I just do not know how to edit your posts . The book that I have is only edited excerps from some of the Fairbanks books so you may be a bit disappointed but i will post all the maps anyway.
  8. The attached Fairbanks map from 1759 seems to show that some of the dates for public houses in the list need amending.

  10. 148 Burngreave Road I lived here with my parents from 1954 to 1969. We had the garden that all our schoolfriends liked to come and play in. We had a holly bush at the top of the garden which made a brilliant den. At the very top of the garden was our field on which we used to pitch a bell tent. It was quite scary sleeping in it at night as the cemetary was just over the wall. During the late fifties we kept chickens for eggs and also to sell to the West Indian community. In the next field was the 205 St Catherines Scout hut which I helped to build.
  11. The Old Harrow has had a makeover and is now open.
  12. I originally went onto this site looking for the map of bombs that had dropped in the vicinity of Meersbrook. I have recently found these photo,s of the top of Lismore Road. A photo from last year for comparison. Must have been an affluent area. Dont the ladies look smart.
