    Genevieve Night Club

    Did you notice when the lads are thrown out of Genevieve's they come out of a door at the bottom of The Moor? Also about 56 mins into the film the lads are in what looks like The Limit and come outside to fight in what seems to be Angel street? Tony Pitts who was the soldier went on to play roles in Emmerdale, Heartbeat etc.http://www.tvrage.com/person/id-44797/Tony+Pitts http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Pitts

    Armed Robbery - Sheffield 1983

    There was a lot of high value cash robberies on post office vans in Sheffield during the 1970s to 80s. During that period money was usually delivered to post offices using normal mail vans which is hard to believe. In more recent years the post office invested in high security vans for cash delivery. I find it interesting that the Black Panther Donald Neilson targeted a post office at Rawmarsh, Rotherham and possibly others within Sheffield. It is estimated that Neilson earned around £18,000 during his criminal career. (£200,000 in todays money) Neilson was a nasty piece of work and would kill anyone who got in his way.
  15. Does anyone remember Bowlers potted beef factory? I remember this as being a row of cottages on Bradway road just up from what was the golf driving range.
