It seems as though everyone in Sheffield can remember the Classic Cinema fire!

Here is a favourite picture I have of the bank and Electra Palace, such interesting buildings, it's a shame we have lost both.

The Electra doesn’t look right, it seems to have been superimposed on the original photo.

I’m surprised no-one has mentioned the Queen’s Restaurant that eventually became the Indus, the Queens was a Greek restaurant and my wife worked there for a short time and we also rented a room in one of their houses on Stafford Road before getting our own place on Gleadless Valley, the Gabriellidis, the owners, lived next door to us and Mrs Zina Gabrielidis was very kind to us, their son George either owned or ran the Montgomery Hotel in Nether Edge.

Whenever I tell people about the Queens, they don’t seem to remember it, the restaurant was sold and the family relocated back to Cyprus.

Eleftherios Gabrielidis previously ran the Royal Cafe in the Norfolk Market Hall.  After being declared bankrupt in 1965 he was finally discharged in 1977.

The Queen's had been a French restaurant - in 1962 the manager was advertising for a "Head Chef with full knowledge of French cuisine" at £25 weekly with monthly bonuses.
