Here is a 1920 map and a 1954 with house numbers so you should be able to pinpoint the houses. If you look around on those sites you may find something better.     ------   https://maps.nls.uk/view/125651248       -----------  https://www.old-maps.co.uk/#/Map/435500/387500/13/101329    ----------

1920

Britain From Above has images from 1933 when the back to backs were still at the at the side of the George Hotel, corner of Arley Street. The same site has a 1952 image when T.C. Harrison were across from number 66. On both of these I think you can see the back of the Talbot Hotel 57/59  Boston Street and also number 66 at the side of the passage which is opposite Harrison's in the later one.

Picture Sheffield has an early image, 1901, showing the Talbot Hotel looking the other way. According to Picture Sheffield at that time the cutlery works were 53/55 with court 11 behind the pub.
