The Park Square roundabout, The Ponds Forge swimming baths area and Sheaf Markets area in Sheffield city centre looking very different in this photo.

Also look at the lack of cars on the road!

Here's the area before Park Square Roundabout was installed..

Do you recognise any of this?

I don’t know when the Newmarket Hotel got its name but it’s not from the racecourse, it’s to commemorate the opening of the New Market nearby, I don’t know when the two words merged into one and didn’t it get a sign with horses on it, what’s Sheffield got to do with a horse racing venue?
