    Dales chip shop Sharrow Vale Rd

    Thats brilliant, many thanks. That id the first photo I've ever seen of Dales chip shop. Im wondering if the sign says Dale's (with an apostrophe) or Dales (without apostrophe)? If it was run by Billy Dale then obviously the former. I know from my family tree that a Dales married a Dale. I wonder where Pete Hill found the photo?

    Dales chip shop Sharrow Vale Rd

    Thanks 270 Sharrow Vale Rd would place the shop just where I was told by the owner of Two Steps chippy across the road. Cant find any reference to it whilst owned by the Dale/Dales family. By the way, it was around this time when a Dales married a Dale, just to confuse the family tree.
  3. Anyone have any information or memories of this chip shop on Sharrow Vale Rd? I believe it was owned by an ancestor of mine, so I'm keen to find out any information. I think it was located opposite where Two Steps chip shop stands today. Ive not been able to find any photos of it, but my understanding is that my great grandad owned it, and my grandad worked for him instead of going to school, but Im keen to and out if any of this is true.
  4. Just seen this photo on eBay of Chantrey House, Norton. Anyone know where it is/was? It has similarities to the current house called Chanrey House on Norton Lane just below the church, but I'm not convinced its the same house.

    Wild Well at Norton Hollow?

    Its a shame the above Photobucket images no longer show. Heres a framed print of Norton Hollow by S Marsden that I came across..

    Is this the best Fish and Chip shop????

    Im sure it was called White Hart chip shop on White Lane, near Gleadless Townsend and next door to the old Harrow pub? Its now Rainbow Chinese takeaway.
  7. I remember aged maybe 6yrs old playing in the playground of the infant school, back in the 70's. There was a girl playing hopscotch and unbeknown to her a Banjo chocolate bar fell out of her pocket as she jumped. My mate quickly picked it up and we ran off to the other end of the playground and shared it between us.

    Black Swan Walk in Sheffield City Centre

    I walked down there the other day, Those old buildings would look lovely if cleaned up. Whats their history?

    1868 auction at Gleadless

    The mention of Charles White, could this be how White Lane that runs from Gleadless Townend gets its name?

    Sheffield Castle

    Do we now who ordered it to be built, who resided in it, and when?

    Hendersons Relish

    I use it on lots of things, like home made chips, bolognese and always on pie. We usually have 2 or 3 bottles on the go at any one time as the thought of running out fills me with dread.

    City Road Sheffield in 1935

    Anlaby Street

    I see on that street map the street names run alphabetically, Anlaby, Brough, Cottam & Driffield. Just like they do in Attercliffe - Attercliffe Rd, Brightside, Carlisle St etc... I wonder if this happens anywhere else in Sheffield?
  15. I was lucky to be authorised access into this building recently, so grabbed a few photos. Work is currently underway repairing the roof, but I don't know what any long term plans are. Floors are missing in many rooms making it quite unsafe. Doorway leading to Court No 1 Entrance/exit door, I think onto Waingate?
