Rivellin Postcard Posted Broomhill Area to Stannington.

Recommended Posts

If I am reading the postmark correctly this was franked at the west district sorting office on Turner's Lane which I think was there until the early 70's. Can anyone please confirm or otherwise that the building in the third picture was the post office building?            --------------------

Thanks  RLongden  ,  I couldn't find a photo' of the building when it was the post office, but I don't think it looked as plain and boring as it does now. I wonder how many of the other old district sorting office or even sub post office buildings are still in existence?

Regarding the postcard photo', Rails Road has also changed quite a  bit.  I frequently walked through that valley many years ago.

@boginspro  have you visited this site? There’s some interesting stuff and occasional references to some Sheffield locations.

Worth a scan through, over a cuppa and a biscuit! :)
