Sweet Shop Chesterfield Road

Recommended Posts

As a child of 4 in 1967 I recall my mum taking me in a shop on Chesterfield Rd to buy a lolly.For many years I have been searching for a picture of said premises.Finally 49 years later one has appeared on Picture Sheffield.Does anyone remember this shop-on the left? Can anyone tell me the owners name and the shop number?

I can confirm that this was indeed the 'Sugar Bowl' as my parents had this shop between 1982 and 1984.

As I recall, next door was a shoe cobblers, I think he went by the name of Ivan? And opposite was an estate agents, Whitegates I believe. 

Unfortunatley I don't have any photographs of the old shop which is a shame.

The shoe repairer next door was Ivan Hayter, great bloke, he gave me my first job and trained me as a shoe repairer when he was manager of Timpson Shoe Repairs on Abbeydale Road. I later went on to manage that shop and others. Ivan had an artificial leg but could still jump off a back loader in front of the shop as the bus slowed down for the next stop.

Not far from the sweet shop but in the opposite direction.

That photo' brings back memories, thank you, back loader coming down, possibly 75/76 route and Atlantean going up, perhaps 42/53 route, so I think it must be 60's when Ivan was probably still managing the Timpson shop on Abbeydale Road.

Well boginspro,  The Atlantean is a 42 [number is very clear on original photo]. Service 42 ran to Graves Park and 53 ran to Woodseats [Abbey Lane].  All that changed mid 1966 when service 38 to Lowedges was abandoned and the 42/53 took its place. So looking looking closely at all the cars [the newest one looks to be a 63 FB Vauxhall Victor] I would date it 66/67. W/E.

I was a child in the 1950s/60s and remember the sweet shop on Chesterfield Road so well.  Even if we couldn't afford any sweets I used to love to watch the working model displayed in the shop window.   The model was changed from time to time.   I remember them being  made of something like meccano which had small silver balls rolling down some contraptions.  I could stand and watch it for ages.  Such were our simple pleasures in those days!
