Barker's Pool/Bob Dylan

Recommended Posts

I came to Sheffield in 1980 and went to the Gaumont in Barker's Pool many times. I realise this photo claims to be taken in 1966 but is this really Barker's Pool ?

Clearly not.

The web has numerous photos of Dylan taken by the same photographer and being labeled as “taken in Sheffield on May 16, 1966.”

One such photo actually shows him leaving LSD Partners betting shop on Castle Blvd in Nottingham - which he would have likely passed between his concert in Leicester on May 15 and his concert in Sheffield on May 16. While the street in Nottingham isn’t identical to the image that claims to be Barkers Pool there is a lot of similarity with the architecture. So, best guess....

The ‘Barker’s Pool’ photo is actually a random street in Nottingham where he stopped for a lunch or toilet break on his way from Leicester to Sheffield.
