  1. Anyone remember the very innocent social dances at churches like St.Patricks, St.Thomas Mores and St Charles atAttercliffe? They also held them at a little chapel on Herries Road, which is now a funeral directors.

    The Road to Monyash

    Wow, could be right!!! Alas we'll never know!!! My father was a writer, so he loved playing about with words!!! Thanks!!
  3. My father who loved to perform recitations in the style of Stanley Holloway 'The Lion and Albert' for example, used to love one called 'The Road to Monyash' I have not been able to find any reference to this anywhere?

    Spies from our area.

    Did Gerald Brooke eventually become a lecturer in Russian at FPGS (affectionately known as the Redcap School)?
  5. Recreational walking didn't seem to be something that my parents did in the 1950s. I wonder if it was a bit of an elitist thing then with people belonging to rambling clubs rather than just setting out to walk as we do today? Does anyone remember any early rambling groups?
  6. There doesn't seem to be much information on the web about Gerald Brooke who I think was a Soviet spy and a teacher at Firth Park Grammar School. Or about the Pragers, Nicholas and Jarmila who I think lived at Rotherham. Does anyone have any information about them?
  7. Does anyone remember when there was a cup awarded - I think it was called the Vincent Radford cup, in the 50s, 60s for best council house garden?
  8. Thanks for reply. I must say it would make a magnificent mosque!!!!!
  9. Does anyone know what this building has become? I did hear it was now a mosque but that may not be true? I worked there in the library in the early 1990s. What an elegant place it was then!!!!
  10. When I attended St.Patricks Church Youth Club, Sheffield Lane Top, in the mid to late 1950s we would sometimes go over to dances at St.Charles. Other times it would be to dances at St.Thomas More at Parson Cross and at at a little chapel on Herries Road, now a funeral directors.

    Queenies Fish and Chip Shop

    Yes, you are right!!!! Ageing memories!!! Not Nethershire Lane!!!! Anyway, does anyone remember the Fuscos?
  13. Queenies Fish and Chip shop still seems to be on Nethershire Lane at Shiregreen. Does anyone remember the family Fusco who ran it, certainly throughout the 50s and 60s? I went to St.Patricks School with Connie and John Fusco Did it stay in the same families hands?

    Early Days Of Crystal Peaks

    Does anyone remember the Indian Restaurant that was in Crystal Peaks? We used to go there and then see a film. The cinema closed in 2003 and I don't know what happened to the restaurant or what it was called?
