  2. Stubbin Lane Firth Park

    yes they are turning into Sicey Ave and it looks like there is a banner at the back just to the left of the belisha beacon . Anyone who used to go would say definitely Whit Monday. Life's simple pleasures.
  3. Old Register Office

    Yes and before that the old Corn Exchange - http://picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s22437&pos=25&action=zoom&id=24913 my parents and parents in law married there in the 1930/40s.

  8. Does anyone know what these are?

    Wasn't Green Shield stamps the forerunner of Argos? There used to be a redemption shop on the Moor for Green Shield.
  9. I noticed one food stall was selling Yorkshire wraps - any ideas? My idea of a Yorkshire wrap would be a Sheffield fishcake - two thin slices of potato with some proper real fish in between, not mishy, mosh stuff some chip shops use, and dipped in batter and deep fried. I'm hungry now.
  10. Does anyone know what these are?

    Remember too that the customer had a co-op number she used every time she spent. My mother's was 6054. My mother in law's was 71700 but I cannot recall my own. Every so often they could spend their 'divi'. A bit like a points card really I suppose.
  11. The Bennett College

    I have a Bennet College book on Commercial Art that once belonged to my uncle c1930s. It has been well used by myself, sons and grandchildren in helping to teach drawing. Great fun.
  12. Does anyone recognise this place?

    Quite a few photos here of the hall and its uses over time. http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?searchterms=rutland+hall&action=search&keywords=all%3BCONTAINS%3B%rutland%%3BAND%3Ball%3BCONTAINS%3B%hall%%3B
  13. I'll let you off. Lived this end all my life and met my husband in the Paragon 56 yrs ago. Paragon much more cosy than the monkey run in Feb/March. Our first official date was at the Capitol at Lane Top.
  14. Excuse me - I wasn't elderly when I gave them my memories! Go wash your mouth out.
