  1. No idea on the age of the map no date shown in the date box it was 1970's when we did the work at Meynell we took the small buildings down. It measures roughly 3ft by 4ft rather fragile but still readable.
  2. I have a map of Parson Cross taken from when we demolished part of Meynell School, bit battered and torn, it was from the dept of planning and design, scale of 1:2500 and shows house numbers.
  3. Burials for James and wife Hannah are on Sheffield Indexers http://www.sheffieldindexers.com/
  4. I seem to remember this as the Sportsmans bar before it became the Merrie England, so it looks like it's reverting back.
  5. We flattened the housing either side.
  6. Anderson shelters were thicker steel than modern sheeting.
  7. Some information for Bown here, http://www.sheffieldindexers.com/
  8. I remember Heppenstall Metals, the late Fred Pass used to work there, now looks to be Sterling
  9. This one is 1913, price ninepence, by Chas. H. CHANDLER, don't know how often they came out, this one is a bit tired but interesting.
  10. The ( monkey ) Victoria Hotel was on the corner of Parkwood Road.

  12. It's looking black o'er Bills mothers.
  13. Back in the 1970's I removed and replaced with stone a cracked gravestone in front of the doorway of St. Mary's, St. Mary's Road, wonder if the church recorded the gravestone.
