    it was just above woolworths. after redgates moved it became quadrant stationers, you could go downstairs and get through to redgates via a passage.
  2. yes pippy's it was just above Davy's sandwich shop. i remember buying a maxi white afghan coat from there and a long velvet skirt embroidered with little mirrors on it, cheap jewellery and the ever popular joss sticks.

    George Barnsley & Son

    i think woodwork repetitions on mowbray street is owned by the son or grandsons of george barnsley. they still make tools for the shoemaking industry.

    Bridge Street Bus Station

    i remember if we missed the last whistle for the 47 or 48 bus we would run along the road passed the rolling mills and catch the bus at the bottom of corporation street. if we missed it there ( depending on shoes worn ) we would walk up to greasy vera's and grab a taxi. happy days.

    Woodhouse. Sheffield

    thanks neddy. this map must be pre 1895. our house was built in 1895 and is not shown on map. it's great to see how things have changed.
