    So much to notice in this amazing Sheffield photo!

    No tramlines, yet it looks like the poles and power cables are still up ?

    Art Deco Houses

    Do your house deeds and/or lease contain any clues ? Meanwhile I'm pretty certain at Meadowhead roundabout, next door but one to the garage was a really nice Art Deco house - but it's been 'improved' some time in the 1980's/1990's Always been fascinated by these, I was seriously looking into buying one 10-12 years ago

    Triumph Steel Works

    think you can pick the works on this photo prior to the bus garage being extended: http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s12345&pos=2&action=zoom&id=15266 Leadmill Street (on left) after the bus garage was extended: http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;u09812&pos=12&action=zoom&id=108238 Might be more on Picture Sheffield, I just did a quick search of Leadmill Street. There are a couple more photos of the other side of the road to the bus garage

    I bet the culprits were mainly poachers

    You could try trawling through this thread: Although the penalty for murder would have been death rather than transportation

    Made in Sheffield

    I think it's a bit large for corn on the cob. I think it's something to do with cooking joints of meat, but not entirely certain what, maybe pinning certain cuts together while they roast ? But not for carving, there would have been a proper handle. One clue - is it plated or unplated ? My guess is that plated would have meant it would be seen on the dining table, unplated for kitchen use only
  14. Does anything on the Coal Authority mapping come close to your location ? http://mapapps2.bgs.ac.uk/coalauthority/home.html

    Sheffield's Quirky Places

    Backfields, round the back (or round the side) of Coles. You can see the new fire station (now demolished) at the end. The doorway on the left was (I think) Clock DVA's studio
