A friend of mine emailed me this picture with the hope I knew where it is or was, seems some kind of dispute was going on between the owner of the barn at the rear and the builder of the house, it written underneath that the house was at Park Head Ecclesall Road and it was built in 1930 and the dispute was resolved in 1931. I’ve drawn a blank on the photo perhaps one of the Sheffield History members can solve the mystery.

Strange that I’m solving my own mystery picture.

Wll found Tozzin!  I think the square house and the barn behind are on the 1923 map below. And the Google view shows the semi that was built over the barn (the small bedroom window is lower and to the right of the bay window than the adjacent houses.
