  1. Sounds like an early 1970's Slade album ! Well, here is the list of Pubs with no known keeper - some of these are very old and very unlikely ever to give up their secret - some opened in 2002 and I just don't have keeper information for them - any help with old or new much appreciated. Name Address Open Closed Comments Acorn 20 Burton Road 1905 1912 became a boys club Adam and Eve 17 Balaclava Street African Prince Lambert Street 1774 1883 Albion 26 Oxford Street Alexandra 23 Dover Street 1917 Alexandra 91 Dunlop Street, S9 Alexandra Hotel 42 Jericho Street, S3 All Bar One 15 Leopold Street

    Royal Infirmary Hospital

    In an earlier review of Hospital requirements it was proposed to build a new hospital for the south of the City. 190 acres of land was acquired at Coal Aston under the Public Health Act of 1875 and, in a strange twist of fate, the proposed Sheffield Airport was then planned to be built there. By 1933 priorities had change...and the War intervened . Neither was built...the land being used for municipal housing. As an aside, the Northern General is a rambling "Ponderosa"...confusing to the occasional vistor and guaranteed to increase blood pressure if attempting to park a car!😉
  3. From the reverse: THIS WOMAN IS NOT AFRAID TO WORK Mrs. P.G. Woodfield is Sheffield's only woman coal dealer. She delivers the bags of coal herself, as well as driving the lorry, and doing the necessary repairs. Some of the sacks of coal she delivers weigh 75 Kilogramms. Mrs Woodfield unloading sacks of coal from her lorry during her daily round at Sheffield.
  4. Built in the 1820s, shortly after demolished to make way for the rather ugly Charter Square; wall mounted gas lamp, no entrance at all to the pub !!! "Hey Bert, how do we get into this boozer ?" "Down the alley at the side you idiot !" Roberts Brothers store (awaiting the move to their new place on the Moor)
  5. Some adverts for Sheffield based businesses from "A Technical Survey of the Iron & Steel Works of Appleby-Frodingham Steel Company", published by Iron & Coal Trades Review, 1955. Some are to be expected, as the companies are part of The United Steel Companies Limited, but plenty are not. Abrafact Brightside Foundry& Engineering Cooper & Turner Darwins Group Davy United (this advert was across two pages) The Sheffield Twist Drill & Steel Company
  6. Photo of the corner of Tockwith Road and Shirland Lane in Darnall Sheffield. Note the Sunblest Van coming round the corner in the right of picture too! Has Tockwith Road disappeared entrirely now? I can't find it on any modern maps etc but that might be because I'm looking in the wrong place..

  9. This is a fantastic photo of a lovely looking car heading towards Figtree Lane just off Hartshead/Campo Lane. I hope he's going to turn right a little and park up as I don't fancy his chances of heading down Figtree Lane in a car that wide!

    Bird In Hand - Broughton Lane

    BIRD IN HAND pub, 49 Broughton Lane, Sheffield Does anyone remember this pub?
  17. Here's extracts from a booklet about St Philips church that used to stand on Penistone/Infirmary road. I remember the graveyard used to be in between the roads as was my uncles car garage repair shop next door to it. The gravestones were moved to the redevelopment of the Hillsborough Barracks and these are the ones you can see stood straight up in the walls there. Note by the author This booklet, written in response to a request by the Vicar and Council of St. Philip's Church, will, it is hoped, not only revive memories of the past and be an additional link in the long chain of local

    Coal pit Lane

    As most of my family appear to have lived around what is now Upperthorpe, Netherthorpe, through to the town centre along Solly Street and Townhead Street, I was hoping to find Coalpit Lane near there as I have a branch of my family living there. I know roads ‘disappear’ over time and wondered which map I should look at to see if there ever existed Coalpit Lane in this area. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  20. My Osguthorpe (sometimes Osgathorpe, among other variations) hail from Sheffield, and would be interested in hearing from others who may be tracing their Sheffield Osguthorpes. Great-grandad Arthur Osguthorpe (1866-1932) was a time keeper/clerk at John Brown's (steelworks?). During WW1, he was a sergeant in the KOYLI training recruits (he had previously served in the regiment). The family lived at 193 Langsett Road and later at 20 Hawthorn Road. He is reportedly buried in "Wadsley cemetery". Of his children: - daughter Nora (1908-1995) married Henry HIGH, a bricklayer/builder

    EWSCC - What Cricket Club is that?

    John, Some information, but still not there yet... In September 1902 in the Heeley and District League, Ebenezer Reform v Saint Pauls at Norfolk Park. W.Morris batted well for the winners, scoring 38 not out. The score was Ebenezer Reform 73 St Pauls 63. Morris was playing for Ebenezer in June 1902. The church was on Brammall Lane, half a mile from Sellers Street. The clubs in the leagues had very short lives, often only a season. As Ebenezer were of the Wesleyan denomination, possibly EWSCC could be along the lines of Ebenezer Wesleyan School Cricket Club, though I've
  22. Does anyone have any memories or pictures of the Corner Shop on Derbyshire Lane in Meersbrook. I have looked on Picture Sheffield and found one picture but any extra info or pictures would be great. I am Assistant Producer for Wall to Wall media and we are filming the next back in Time series for the BBC in Sheffield this summer. Thanks!

    Brightside Lane - houses

    Having looked at several maps in date order I reckon that:- 1854 Bents Lane (now called Brightside Lane) ran from Savile Street East along the top of Newhall Road to Brightside Bridge where there was a junction where the Bridge Inn used to be. Brightside Lane (now called Meadowhall Road) ran NE along the northern bank of the river to Brightside Mill. Mill Lane (now called Weedon Street) ran from Attercliffe Road to the junction at the Bridge Inn. 1890 Mill Lane is now called Weedon Street. Bents Lane is now called Brightside Lane and ends at the tram terminus at the side of the Bridg
  25. I have picked up in my studies another person involved in the slave trade who lived in Sheffield and became rich from it and that was Edward Bennet, who lived in Coal Pit Lane and who built a sugar refinery. His sugar came from Liverpool, but he is also listed as an investor in a slaving ship along with Thomas Staniforth. His became a preacher and built a Chapel at the same time he was importing sugar from Liverpool. His father was an early Methodist and friends with Whitefield one of the leading abolitionists. So one wonders what the conversations were like in their family. When Edward died
