  1. Thanks for the heads up, Stuart. I think it'll go for a price above my budget though, being unemployed.
  2. I don't suppose there's a similar photo out there showing the bomb damage done to the Neepsend Picture Palace at the bottom of Rutland Road?
  3. Thanks a lot for posting this, my Ma will love it when I show it to her next week. There's one error though, in that you've uploaded page 29 twice. Do you still have the missing page 28 available to upload? Thanks again!
  4. Mike McCarter owned the stall at number 10, maybe it was his.
  5. If anyone does compile a list of stallholders, these are my Mom's recollections from about 1969. MEAT & FISH MARKET STALL NUMBER NAME TRADE ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2 Bunting Butcher 3 Burkinshaw Butcher 10 Mike McCarter Poultry 11 Smith & Tissington Fish & poultry 18 Colin Simmonite Poultry 23 [no name] Greengrocer 24 [no name] Tripe 25 & 25b William Atkin Fish & poultry 31 [no name] Cheese 32 Mary Oldham Cockles 33 Alan & Richard [no surname] Cockles 39 Sea Land Foods Deli 45 & 54 Bingham & Brown Greengrocer
  6. I have a few photos here that I've scanned from Dad's old 35mm slides. A few of the stallholders knew he was a photographer and asked him to take a snap of their stalls. These were taken, I think, in the late 60s. I've stamped a copyright symbol on them in case someone lifts them from a google search, but if anyone would like the originals for personal use, I'll pop them on Dropbox. 1. Mr Lunn, presumably 2. Stall number 5, possibly Mr Burkinshaw? 3. I think this fella's name was Mr G. Hurst 4.Presumably Mr Walter Green's stall?
  7. Just a wee bit of trivia. My Grandad, Fred Deakin, used to work for Stones as a driver's mate. After an accident at work he was compensated for a knee injury and was given the house at the Stones yard to live with his family, effectively being made caretaker of the yard. The house was situated here, and can be seen in the background of this photo from the Picture Sheffield website. Haunted, apparently. (The Blackpool tower jobbie in the background is Rutland Picture Palace).
  8. I don't know if this has been posted before, I've had a look but can't find it on the forum. https://www.dropbox.com/s/fk596rrddzw40cz/1838%20-%20Whites%20Directory.png (I tried to attach the file but it hasn't appeared. Maybe I don't have the required number of posts?)
  9. I've popped the Castle Market floorplan into my public DropBox folder, and I'll leave it there permanently for all who'd like a copy of it. https://www.dropbox.com/s/awizqc0no00kd7e/Castle Market Floorplan (PDF%2C 3.44MB).pdf?dl=1 And you're welcome, Dave!
  10. William (Wm.) Atkin was my dad, who owned the fish and poultry stall. Dad's stall was located in the centre of the market, as can be seen on this pic: https://www.hpacde.org.uk/picturesheffield/jpgh_sheffield/s02017.jpg The same view as this photo: http://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_rel_module=post&attach_id=29176 Here's a useful floorplan of Castle Market for you guys: https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/business-economy/markets/stalls-available.html Dad's stall was 25/25b, telephone number 26254 ;)
