When I lived in Sheffield if I was meeting anyone it was always ouside Hibberts so I could look at the George Cunningham prints in the windows - anybody else remember this shop?

Just at the top of Norfolk Street on here.

That rings a bell

I wonder if that was something I did - it certainly sounds like it..

It was at the corner of Norfolk Street and Surrey Street, diagonally opposite the Town Hall and across Surrey Street from the new hotel. I think that it's a herballist / health food shop now.

I used to go in there alot because one of my mother's cousins married into the family and my great grandad used to display his paintings there. In later years my friend's mother worked there as an accountant.

Hibbert's had been in Sheffield since the 1830s. The lease on the Surrey Street shop ran out and the rent went up beyond the firm's ability to pay it. Very sad - I often used to look in the window on my way to and form the library, and buy my Rotring supplies there. There are plenty of herbalists and health food shops in Sheffield but no longer a proper art shop.
