Triumph Steel Works

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me the exact location of the Triumph Steel Works? The only address I can find is “Shoreham Street” but the satellite images on Google Maps do not show anywhere there that a steel works might be located.

It is a bit silly that I don’t already know this, as John James Saville was my great-uncle...

Thank you very much! You can’t be more precise than that.

Looks a bit like student accommodation now on Google Street View, but that’s just a guess.

Same area circa 1954, tram/bus sheds extended.

think you can pick the works on this photo prior to the bus garage being extended:

Leadmill Street (on left) after the bus garage was extended:

Might be more on Picture Sheffield, I just did a quick search of Leadmill Street. There are a couple more photos of the other side of the road to the bus garage
