  1. Is this from the book Sheffield Emerging City? if so my Nan bought me this book in 1969 when I was off school with measels, I was wishing for a toy, so at the time the book was real dissapointment, not anymore though, as you say a great book with some excellent images.
  2. The tunnel still survived as a storage area in the co-op but was bricked up at the far end, the co-op did want to by the store on the moor but the price was too expensive at the time.
  3. There is a corner stone on the old Burtons building, now Subway at Hillsborough corner, laid by one of the Burton's dated 1930
  4. That would probably have been the same night, but I think they played a few songs including Tears are not enough and Alphabet Soup, but probably only about four.
  5. Did anyone else see ABC perform at Penny's Nightclub? on the night there was fresh fruit on each table, very odd for a club night, not sure if they were miming, but the songs were much more funky, simmilar to the Higsons prior to Trevor Horn getting his hands on them.
  6. 4 added to the list:- 1852 the lodge house on Taptonville Road 1896 Hillsborough Market, Holme Lane 1897 House on Hallamgate Road 1931 Childrens Hospital
  7. Yes,very loosly, the stones are part of the base to stanage pole.
  8. I did think that after I had posted the first pic.
  9. I Wonder if these or the ones on Petre Street are the ones my mums friend was telling her about as raised in one of my previous posts, I know they are not Neepsend but the mind of a 92 year old could be mixing up the locations, but her discription was as though she still lived in the huts? "Hi My mum was talking to someone who lived in Neepsend Huts, does anyone have any information nabout these huts, life there and there location? "
  10. Crookes endowed school, original building 1791 and 3 extensions 1866, 1869, 1886 all on date stones
  11. I think that behind the Trams you would find the old B&C co-op castle house building
  12. Many Woolies were split in two when the Kingfisher company bought Superdrug and used some Woolies space to expand the Superdrug estate of stores. I was working at the store in Doncaster, Frenchgate Ctr at the time. The Store Manager was Stuart Thompson who had previousy managed the Sheffield Haymarket Store, the team in Doncaster were a great set and we had some great times.. I later moved on to manage Woolies stores in Thorne and Alfreton.

  14. Fanny May's the American mortgage lender had a store in Sheffield! or was a slip of the finger, did you mean Violet May's?
  15. which crookes moor dam, Hadfield Dam, Old Great Dam, Godfrey Dam, ralphs dam or New Dam?
  16. Am I mistaken I think I remember the Moor and Furnival gate being one store, joined by a tunnel in the basement?
  17. The gates refered to are at the entrance to the Guide Camp, Whitley Woods, Common Lane.
  18. Is it the entrance to the Guide Camp at Whitley Woods on Common Lane?
  19. Possibly the old fire station on Division Street. Answering my own question. Simmilar, but not correct.
  20. Looks like a Burtons type of building, possibly Attercliffe.
  21. Thanks Tim, the posts regarding there being no Scout hut were making my father think he was loosing his marbles, as he vividly remembers the hut although he did initially think they were sleeping huts, he definitely remembers the wooden hut. He had a friend lived on a neighbouring farm, that still lives in the area. He is still also convinced that the stream was dammed, although probably in a temporary way, to be used to swim in. Regards
