  1. And some more: S Rhodes & Co Samuel Fox Thomas Marshall & Co Thos W Ward Ltd The United Steel Companies Limited F H Wheeler William Wild & Sons Ltd G P Wincott Limited Yorkshire Engine Co
  2. Some more: Edgar Allen & Co Flame Hardeners Ltd General Refractories Ltd Hadfields Merrill Pumps John M Moorwood Ltd - this advert was across two pages, so there is a dodgy join in the middle Newton Chambers Nitralloy Limited Rapax Limited
  3. Some adverts for Sheffield based businesses from "A Technical Survey of the Iron & Steel Works of Appleby-Frodingham Steel Company", published by Iron & Coal Trades Review, 1955. Some are to be expected, as the companies are part of The United Steel Companies Limited, but plenty are not. Abrafact Brightside Foundry& Engineering Cooper & Turner Darwins Group Davy United (this advert was across two pages) The Sheffield Twist Drill & Steel Company

  7. Online Video was a company which produced a lot of tramway, trolleybus and railway videos back in the days before DVDs came along. Nothing to do with the film having been available on the internet. Some of these videos are available as DVDs from Wolverton Rail.
  8. From British Industries Review, September 1924. This proved to be awkward to scan as the pages were wider than my A4 scanner and were not very well cut. I managed to get all the text and images in (just!) Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4
  9. unfortunately Rare & Racy closed in June 2017
  10. I make occasional visits to Sheffield and have a few photos. I shall be back in March with my husband who likes to film things, so I should have some film to share at a later date. From the days of test running before the passenger service started, car 202 coming off the new line at Meadowhall South/Tinsley Car 204 waiting on the curve. It is a very tight curve. A visit in late December: Cars 201 & 206 at the low height platforms at Rotherham Central Station 206 passing the heavy rail platforms at Rotherham 206 approaching Parkgate 206 at the Parkgate terminus 206 leaving Parkgate and rejoining the main line The other end of the route: Cathedral Although a couple of heavy rail trains were seen passing Parkgate, the chance to get shots of main line trains and tram-trains together was scuppered by train guards being on strike. As my next visit will be on a Friday there should (hopefully) be a proper train service running. I am also looking to use additional locations for photography and filming as I will have more time.
  11. That looks rather more convincing than my first suggestion. I based it to some extent on the belief that at such an early date the original Tinsley to Nether Edge route was still operating, but I was mistaken. As early as 1901 Tinsley was linked with Millhouses, so the Millhouses terminus seems a likely answer, especially with the additional evidence presented.
  12. My first thought is Wostenholm Road near the junction with Priory Place, but I don't have time to look in more detail at the moment.
  13. Some more from the same book Eclipse Hack Saw Blades from James Neill Interchangeable Steel Type from Edward Pryor & Son Springs and Spring Washers from John Tonks & Co
