In recent times it was Barker Collins Engineering Limited, until they moved up to the Thorncliffe Estate in Chapeltown. That said, the figure that was Hallamsteel's logo (I think it was Vulcan?) was and still is on the front apex of the building. It used to stretch further up Bardwell Road, as this link to Google street view in 2008 shows:

I think this is the place that James Firth V.C. worked. Can anybody confirm this?

​He lived at the end of Douglas Terrace and then on Douglas Road so it is a possibility.

​This was also the place where Italian singer Toni Dalli worked too before he became professional .
