Dales chip shop Sharrow Vale Rd

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any information or memories of this chip shop on Sharrow Vale Rd?

I believe it was owned by an ancestor of mine, so I'm keen to find out any information. I think it was located opposite where Two Steps chip shop stands today. Ive not been able to find any photos of it, but my understanding is that my great grandad owned it, and my grandad worked for him instead of going to school, but Im keen to and out if any of this is true.

There are a couple on Picture Sheffield that show the right place. Not sure if blowing them up can shed any light? This one is from c.1900.

Not sure of the era you are interested in, but here are 2 census returns for 270 Sharrow Vale Road, for 1911 and 1939:

Here's part of a postcard (on sale at https://sheffieldpostcard.co.uk/catalogue/   ).  The arrow is above 270 Sharrow Vale Road, the fourth premises past the junction with Hickmott Road (looking Eastwards)

Thanks

270 Sharrow Vale Rd would place the shop just where I was told by the owner of Two Steps chippy across the road. Cant find any reference to it whilst owned by the Dale/Dales family. By the way, it was around this time when a Dales married a Dale, just to confuse the family tree.
