    Tram Locations

    First picture is definitely Vulcan Road, taken during the war, as the front fender is painted white and the tram has a headlamp mask. Looking at the second picture, it looks like a posed photo so I don't think the destination blinds will help. The tram seems to be on reserved track to one side of the road, so that makes it either Abbeydale Road near Millhouses Park, or Abbey Lane, but a quick look on Google maps doesn't immediately throw up anything obvious.

    Picture Sheffield Manor picture?

    Thanks to the air photo I think it's Prince of Wales Road and we are stood at the junction with Fitzhubert Road. If you look past the truck you can see a stone wall and that must have been a field wall from the farm days. As the Boot Houses were not built or just off shot. Then yes it's around 1925 for certain or earlier. Going on the location I would say the pylon structure could be the trees on Windy House lane around the pond that was there. Some of the houses on the Fairleigh side look still under construction, with windows not in place.

    Anyone know what this is?

    Forget my last post. Found them all now except 52 White Lane. A street view link to that one would be appreciated.

    Anyone know what this is?

    Following on from Kidneystone's report, I've used Google Streetview to find a further six posts along the A6135. If anyone's passing and is able to get a picture of any of the following, please do send them to me via gpo-markers.derektp.co.uk ... the database is very nearly at 200 marker posts, so any others elsewhere in Sheffield (or further afield) also very much welcomed! :-) Here are the locations of the ones I've found but would like close-ups of: 252 High Greave 198 The Common, Ecclesfield 148 The Common, Ecclesfield 200 White Lane, Chapeltown 62 White

    Hunters Bar School

    I attended Hunters Bar Infants' School from Jan 1947. There was an open coal fire in the classroom. After a few weeks it started to snow and I didn't attend for weeks. The Reception class teacher was Mrs Rawlinson(?); I missed much of the year, starting in January and then the school closed for the snow. Miss Needham was the head. I remember Miss Woolman and Miss Newton. In the main school I was taught by Miss Towle for two years in J1 and J2. In J3, we had Mr Jessop and Mr Flannery. The latter was an entertaining and genial teacher but later became the permanently angry MP for Hillsboroug

    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
  13. Hi Some further news. I have received the 1949 death certificate for John Rose (as identified by Edmund) and it is the correct one with more information. He died 22/10/1949 age 76 and his occupation as Licensee. Cause of death cardiac arrest and chronic bronchitis. Reported by his widow Alice Rose (nee Cheetham) and the address is the Wellington Inn, Westgate, Rotherham! So at least 20 years as a licensee. It was operational from 1909, a Bentley pub to start with and closed in 2011. It is now a Dance Studio and the pictures show a fine Edwardian building. I have not found any further
  14. Any ideas why Cockshutts Lane in Oughtibridge is sometimes referred to as Jossey Lane (maybe Jossy) ? On all the maps I can view, it is always shown as Cockshutts Lane.
  15. I have found 14 model railway wagons (though two are different makes of the same wagon) that appear to represent real wagons owned by Sheffield Companies. But did the real life wagons actually exists? Or where they made up rather like the Redgates Wagon made by Hornby (see Redgates thread). If each of the companies represented did exist, did they use railway wagons regardless of the model status? If the wagons were real, what date period are we talking for each? The companies: 1 Nunnery 2 Ketton Cement 3 General Refractories 4 Amoco 5 Longbottom &

    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!😉

  18. Dear Edmund and leksands, Some very good news. Obtained the marriage certificate of John Rose and Alice Cheetham 6th June 1936. This confirms that he is the grandfather of Mary. He is recorded as a Licensed Victualler of 107, Porter Street, Sheffield. In 1937 Ida Clixby (nee Rose) took over in this role and he and Alice moved to the Rivelin. As leksands identified there was also a John Rose, who during 1935, until May 1936, was licensee of the White Hart, Russell Street. This seems to fit all the dates covering the period 1927 to 1940. I will follow Edmund's suggested 1949 date for his

    Green Square, Charles Lane

    Thanks for that, The location is now at the right of the only remaining part of the lane. I have traced the route taken by the census taker in 1851 and there were 22 dwellings in Green Square with 124 residents. Considering that the area of the housing footprint was approx. 30x12 metres that gave a density of about 3 sq.m per person. Including the inner courtyard and the passageway at the side, the whole area was approx. 30 x 24 sq. metres, To put it in perspective 124 people were living in an area of about the size of a basketball court sharing what looks like on the map, a wash house
