  1. Bradleys came to mind as soon as I read 'B'
  2. Barnetts High St 1960s, ladies costumiers - only sold coats and suits. Just above Aldine court. They also had a shop below C&A called Barnett Huttons who sold dresses too. Richards across the road from them near to Boots
  3. Have you tried looking on http://www.sheffieldsoldierww1.co.uk/Home.html a brilliant site for WW1?
  4. Hand-me-Downs & Cut and Make New

    Just done that last week with a denim collar on one of my husband's favourite jumpers. Used to make my own clothes, curtains, hooded tops for the lads etc. Needs must. Knitting, crocheting too
  5. The Raincoat Shop

    CGS have a website - http://www.omnesamici.co.uk/
  6. http://picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s26186&pos=102&action=zoom&id=28613 Very similar view. I think it is top of Newhall Rd and the Attercliffe swimming baths would have been across the road from it. As you say more Attercliffe Road/Newhall Road. And this one a bit further round the corner onto Newhall Rd - http://picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;t07203&pos=110&action=zoom&id=95886
  7. Newhall Road and Attercliffe common?
  8. Liberty Bodice

    I had a deprived childhood - I didn't have one. Would love one now though to keep those winter chills at bay.
  9. Anyone remember this in the Sheaf Markets?

    If I recall it correctly she did have a go at guessing your weight and then weighed you to see if it was correct.
  10. Grenoside

    I believe one older member actually recalls working there. Nether House was it? The group do put on fantastic bi-annual exhibitions. They also put on history displays here http://www.grenosidereadingroom.co.uk/ and sometimes give talks. The reading rooms are worth a visit.
  11. I agree - ceremonial archway celebrating Royalty?
  12. Grenoside

    The history group has maps, publications and census's that may have some details of interest to you . https://www.grenosidelocalhistory.co.uk/ https://www.grenosidelocalhistory.co.uk/publications/ They usually meet on a Tuesday morning and workshop mornings would be best for you to go and see them.
  13. Still the school now rebuilt but merged with Hinde House to become one large school on two sites. http://www.hindehouseprimary.net/site-map.asp and yes the school dentist was at Hatfield House Lane School in the 50s The one on North Quadrant was the welfare (baby) clinic.
  14. I remember the school clinic and the old school we knew no longer stands. I was there in the 1950s. http://picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;v00729&pos=6&action=zoom&id=42126 Now it is a new building and combined with Hinde House. I would like to know what happened to the school clinic records when it closed as there is something I would like to check out. . Lyn
  15. Darnall Sunday School Parade - 1910

    wonderful photo but I am somewhat surprised at all the flowers being carried. I recall the Whit Monday parades of the 50s and 60s with all the bands etc assembling in the parks.
