That old one's not Sheffield. I think it's Albert Mills on Albert Street, Huddersfield, from Summer Street.

Beat me to it. Having decided it was not Summer Street in Sheffield I was working through likely places, but hadn't got to Huddersfield!

So disappointed!  Loads of my family members  lived on Summer Street and whilst I’ve seen the one from 1919, I would have loved to see the rest of the Street and to try to catch a glimpse of Great Grandad’s beer house on the corner on Mushroom Lane

This one I have seen before.  I suspect some of the kids would be my relations.

I think I have seen this one before.  My father was born at number 64. His grandparents ran the Dolphin beer house on the corner of Summer Street and Mushroom Lane. Brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles all lived in the area.  Walter Ellis, was quite a well known character as a parish councillor and the President of the Edge Tool Grinders Society

I know the area well as I work in the area.  My maternal grandmother grew up on Mitchell Street and maternal grandad on Fawcett street

I can't find any photos of the Dolphin - have you ever seen any?

No, I'm guessing it was like a double fronted corner shop with beer on one side and groceries on the other.  Walter and Harriet started out at no 19, ct 2 and worked their way up the street as they prospered.  I intend to try to map out who lived where using census records and the street map, which was kindly shared with me on a previous post.  What I’d really like is to buy a print of the map to work from.  Walter was killed by a tram in 1909.  I think he either had a stroke or was affected from years of being a grinder. He was a friend of William Broadhead.  They used to drink together with my uncles in the Red House at the top of Solly Street
