  1. A similar photograph of this building appears in the book "Rail Centres Sheffield" by Stephen R. Batty. The photo. is credited to P.C.H. Robinson and is captioned "The remains of the former LNWR engine shed at Nunnery, closed during 1928 and seen here in late 1966"
  2. The small jewellers shop on Leopold Street was Alexander Bortner.
  3. The creature depicted on the top of Tankersley Tunnel is a Wyvern, which was the heraldic symbol of the Midland Railway which built the line. The Wyvern can be found on many ex-Midland Railway buildings, Sheffield (Midland) Station for instance.
