Aunt Trixie

Recommended Posts

When my sister and I were children we were sometimes taken to visit someone described at Auntie Trixie. She may have lived in the Broomhill or Broomhall area of Sheffield. We never knew who she was or if she was a relation. Anyone got a Trixie in the long lost family files?

Not a relative but, we had a friend called Trixie in the 70's who lived on High Broomspring on the Broomhall Flats.

She was a very small and very smart lady. I'm afraid I can't remember her surname. She was a regular in The Domino pub which is where we first met her.

She would be in her 50's around that time, her husband was called Dougie and she had a son who lived some distance away so we never met him.

When the flats were demolished, she moved to a house on John Street.

Probably no longer around now unfortunately. Haven't seen her since the 1980's.

Thanks but I think Auntie Trixie was quite old in the 1950s!!! Isn't it frustrating when there is no one left to ask!!

One of the problems with this is that in the 1950's a lot of adult female family friends were call aunties but were not related in any way.
