    How are you coping with the Sun?

    Fill a hot water bottle with cold water and keep it in the fridge to take to bed with you at night. Also a plant spray filled with icy cold water - spray the room & bed before you go to bed.

    Page Hall Mission school

    It was mentioned in the minutes of tthe Guardians of the Sheffield Union. Thye were no longer going to send children to the school there. I've attempted to look on maps for it with no joy but have a vague idea of something else on this forum some time ago about something similar with the entrance possibly being on Rushby St. The building is no longer there but has been replaced with a modern building that I believe sells Asian clothes. Where did you get your info from Edmund?
  5. c 1902 - some records I was looking at mentioned Page Hall Mission school. Any ideas of where it was and when it finished? Thanks

    mimimawking - my mum and her sisters did it all the time. I think it was because they worked in Batchelors canning factory so it was form of lip reading and facial expressions. It was usually done behind other family member's back - especially my dad's

  12. Bradleys came to mind as soon as I read 'B'
  13. 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
  14. Have you tried looking on http://www.sheffieldsoldierww1.co.uk/Home.html a brilliant site for WW1?
