    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
  4. 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

    I'm thinking Chesterfield Road, roughly where Homebase is. The vista reminds me of another thread recently - hang on a sec... https://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/topic/16551-new-book-about-the-history-of-nether-edge/?tab=comments#comment-139758 Actually I think I'm too far out. Maybe a lot closer in like East Bank Road / Ball Inn or even City Road (I'm guessing now)

    Help needed re: Sidney Street in Sheffield City Centre

    Here's the view from my office window circa 1989. The black building in my photo is the one just visible on the right of the OP's photo

    testing testing I might have broke it temporarily there: I found the source of these images ? https://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/topic/5885-sheffield-castle/

    Sheffield Castle

    I've got some of the images, I would have found them on the web somewhere (but also the Friends... website has some images & plans)
  12. As far as I can tell this is the building referred to in the Defence Of Britain project. There's supposed to be a concrete pillbox with single embrasure in the basement. Although surely there were houses in the way in the 1940s (?)

    Express Dairy Milk Floats - Remember These ?

    I was just thinking that the other day, I'm fairly certain it was still there 'recently' but whether that's five or ten years ago is beyond me at the moment

    Laurel and Hardy at Sheffield Empire Theatre in 1952

    I do love that photo, and you'd never guess who they were without a clue I went on a bit of a L&H binge recently after finding a film on the BBC iPlayer - their comedy is timeless. Then I went on to try to locate the ultimate Keystone Cops film - I remember seeing it when I was probably about five or so, no idea what it was called...
  15. I'm guessing it's the one on Matilda Street by the bridge as they used to rehearse round the corner, and from the conversation I think it's the time that Adrenalin had just opened (in the old Artspace) or it's one on Devonshire Green next to where Input Studios used to be
