Has anyone out there got any photos of the Crosspool shopping centre in the 1960s or early 1970s

Not sure of the date on this one, but I went to school with Mr Manns daughter in the late '60s:

Hi

Thanks for the pics, they bring back good memories. If my memory is correct Celia's was a woolshop, I think the empty shop later became Rose's bakery and the shop to the right of that later became Ashe & Nephew, but of course I could be wrong (it's been a long time) and memories play tricks. If you come across any more pics I'd love to see them. Sadly I left Sheffield in 1973 and because of failing health it's unlikely I'll ever visit my home town again so these old pics are a joy to see.

Regards

Sixspeed

Hi.

I've already mentioned in a previous post (Debenham's?) that Mr Mann's daughter is called Susan. Susan lived opposite us on Whirlow Court Road and then moved to Long Line with her Mum and Dad in the late 60's. When she left school which was the private one on Abbey Lane (now flats) she worked in the Record Bar in Debenham's. One of those record bars where you could select a disc and then listen to it on headphones in one of the booths. I've not seen Susan since the late 60's so I've no idea where she is now? However, it is interesting to note that the fish mongers on Sharrow Vale Road (opposite the Porter Cottage) is called Mann's, are they any relation?
