  1. 17th century cottages swept away sometime in the past, the old photo looks like the late 1890s, the brickworks chimney of John Gregory and son at the bottom of the road on Ecclesall Road, the shop on the corner of Blair Athol road is still there but now it's a Chip Shop.
  2. The Goodwin Fountain

    I recall all the litter that accumulated in it and the students pouring washing up liquid in it. It was a nice feature but someone always has to spoil things.
  3. That's my photo of the Police Station, as is the story straight from the Stars Saturday Retro supplement which I write every week.

  5. Gentlemen's Convenience

    Please don't sink to Sheffield Forum level, or I'll have to pull the flush on this thread!
  6. I noticed this morning that the old Gents Toilet on Blonk Street is finally getting a new lease of life by being turned into a Café, it's getting an extension over the river.
  7. Quite right and I seem to remember in the fifties that to the right of the building as a small garage or is my memory failing me?
  8. Where was this photo taken?

    Never knew it was on picture sheffield.
  9. Beggar outside Stewart & Stewart corner of Pinstone Street and Cross Burgess Street , seems this unfortunate dressed slightly better than todays beggars.
  10. Have any of you keen members have an idea where this photo was taken?
  11. Pedestrians and Traffic 1950

    Has anyone noticed how the shoes of the pedestrians are nearly all highly polished, men's, women's and children's? It does show the shell of Marples but I cannot remember the name of the store on the corner of High Street and Marketplace, was it Burtons? I much prefer the railings round the then parish church of St Peter and St Paul to what we have today.
  12. Does anyone know what these are?

    I personally think the name " Check" came about because they resembled the metal checks that miners in the area used for going down the pit.
  13. Sorry to be pedantic but it was " Alsop" no apostrophe " S "
  14. Colorised photo of Sheffield

    The church is now a performing arts theatre, I'm sure the church is more or less opposite the top of Wilkinson St.
  15. Colorised photo of Sheffield

    Nice view of Glossop Road, not to much traffic.
