The old Co op store on Ecclesall Rd. was one of the places to shop in the 1950's when I was growing up. It also had what I thought at the time was a posh restaurant where we celebrated many family occasions. It was to me then like Meadowhall is today.

The Sharrow cycling club used to have their Annual dinners there with the prize presentation and a dance later in the evening. Here is a picture of the chief guest admiring the trophies.

When was this picture taken? The guy holding the trophy looks like either Mr Ferris, Lord Mayor 1966-67 (I think!) or Cllr Harold Lambert. The Sheffield coat of arms neckless suggests he has been Lord Mayor.
