  1. 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.
  4. 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?

    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?
  12. 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?

    The Sun Inn / Park Hill Flats in Sheffield

    War damage, or demolition for the railway?

    Park Hill and Hyde Park Flats Construction

    I'm interested in the stone archways/tunnels in the bottom left of this photo. I guess all of this in now under Park Sq roundabout?

    The Park Hill slums

    Despite being slums at the time, I bet they would look quite nice and interesting buildings by todays standards.
