  3. Greetings. 2018

    A Very Happy New Year to All .
  4. That's correct and at least one of them was pre-war, it was a good place to start your HGV career due to the fact a lot of companies used to say no experience no job,Sid wasn't that fussy so after driving his ancient Scammells future employers then said if you can drive his trucks you can drive anything we've got.
  5. When i first got my HGV Licence i drove for Sid Harrison's at Tinsley and he had Steam Lorries in the Yard that he took to shows. i think he had steam cranes as well but i'm not sure about them.
  6. Just spotted this in a 1893 Newspaper, it shows how greatfull we should be for modern day medicine. The Sheffield & Rotherham Independent (Sheffield, England), Tuesday, September 12, 1893.
  7. My Conductor and I got reported for singing on route to Totley she said that we shouldn't have been enjoying ourselves while working so we both got carpeted but Miss Moncur thought it funny.
  8. An early photo of me and the Christmas tree, pity I can't remember the occasion but I was very young.
  9. Does anyone know what these are?

    Bottle Tops ??

    Sheffield Daily Telegraph 28 February 1911 Hi Monica You mentiond a Brother Walter and i have spotted this that might be of interest. Gary.
  11. My father Ernest Morton

    Sheffield Daily Telegraph 07 May 1914 The reason i was suspicious that some of the posts i put on were wrong is due to some such as this where Earnest Morton is followed by ( Whitley Bridge ), and the referance to his age of 17 was my estimate due to the ages that you stated. There are other people with the same name including a Vicar and a Doctor but the ages dont match.
  12. My father Ernest Morton

    Sheffield Daily Telegraph 25 January 1939 Sadly the previous Two could be the wrong Earnest ( unless he came from Whitley Bridge ? ) Maybe this one is correct now i am working backwards.
