It is on the 1938 extension of the Gas Offices on Commercial Street, presumably by Philip Lindsey Clark as is the figure on the other end of that building.

It is on Commercial Street yes!

I noticed these sculpture things as I stood at the tram stop near Canada House

You can see and learn so much from just looking UP in Sheffield!

Have a look at  Carmel House on Fargate and just look at the carvings of the creation of the world by the Tory family.

Carmel House is actually on the corner of Norfolk Row, picture (c) Google Street View. I think it was originally built for the Y.M.C.A. and also had some nice plaster work inside and I think some stained glass windows, I wonder if any of that is still there?

Why I put St James Row I'll never know as I know perfectly well it's Norfolk Row, sack cloth and ashes for a week !!. The creation of the world carvings are over the first floor windows.

Certainly a fine and interesting building, I would like to see more control of the the design of frontages of the ground floor shops, as is often said on here "you have to look up"
