    Does anyone know where this was?

    Definitely Herries Rd - NGH on the left - where the bollards are is Norwood Rd junction on the right. I re,eber teh prefabs being on the RH side too and they were replaced by flats late ?1970s. Remember the bus stop like that but don't have any idea as to why it seems to have a balcony thing on top.
  3. I have been given a photograpic reproduction of a postcard of Shiregreen Road no 1172 on the back of it. I have looked at an old map of the area 1850ish and it does look as if it could be Shiregreen Lane towards the end where it leads to Wincobank Hall. Has anyone else seen a similar photo at all?

  8. If you have never visited this before then put it on your 'to do' list. They do a lovely soup, cakes and teas etc at a very reasonable price. Open on Mondays but do check their website first. All run by volunteers http://www.grenosidereadingroom.co.uk/news/ The new exhibition on display in the Reading Room is “How we once lived.” Many thanks once again to the Grenoside and District Local History Group for their work in providing such a wonderful exhibition.

    Wicker Post Card and Mistery Item.

    I fully agree with the last theory. I remeber at Firth Park Terminus in the 1950s a pole being used to change the tram to another line. Some trams stopped at FIrth Park others went to Lane Top.

    Burtons Buildings Sheffield

    I think along with C & A Modes it was damaged in the blitz and wasn't properly rebuilt until the mid 50s. http://picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;t03147&pos=2&action=zoom&id=33500

    Can you do this?? Mobile phone users a challenge!!

    Thanks Edmund - I do every so often ring my landline which has an answering machine so I do take about 2 yrs to use up my PAYG £10. Last of the big spenders that's me!

    Can you do this?? Mobile phone users a challenge!!

    Have a landline why would I need a mobile if I have managed most of my loooooooong life without one? Oh yes I do have a basic mobile - it lives in my bag untouched except for if ever there is an emergency. If my family ever get a call from me on it then they will know it is a dire emergency.
