Jackson Antiques - 227, Abbeydale Road


Recommended Posts

David Wainwright

Another long shot but here goes..... My great-uncle Harry Jackson owned an antiques shop on Abbeydale Road for a number of years.  I am told it was one of a pair but the location of the second shop has been lost to time.  The first two attached pictures are taken of Abbeydale Road.  The third may be the other shop.  Can anyone advise how I might track down the location of the second shop?

Thanks in advance.

You keep beating me to it, Steve 😄

I was searching Kelly's 1957 when you posted that info, and I have just copied a link to Google Streetview with the intention of posting it here.

Richard.... Thank you very much for your reply.  Would you by any chance have any photographs of the shop

I was at school with David Jackson, the son of the owner of the London Road shop at that time. Would welcome any news of him for the Sharrow Lane School reunion list....if ever it can be staged again.

I'm sorry I 'm afraid I can't help you out with that.  I am only a distant relative to David's grandfather, Harry, and not a local to Sheffield.

Evocative photo. I had quite forgotten the little tobacconist and sweetshop next door to it.  I was also a regular user of the Junior Library at Highfields  (I'm talking 1947 to 1953) where my particular delight was the large number of "How to" books on science and many other things...and a certain Arthur Ransome ! And one other note of nostalgia from that location, the tram stop where us kids queued up under the watchful eye of our teacher before going on nature study walks in Ecclesall Woods. It was directly opposite the antique shop.

Another long-shot for you good folk of Sheffield to ponder over.  My great uncle also appears to have had a shop on Glossop Road at some point in time.image.png.a553c345d3248f30ecd06e74966ac76f.png

Google Maps takes me here:- 195 Glossop Rd

But I can find no other information about this address.  Can anyone help or point my at the best place to search further?

Nothing to show in the 1957 directory:

Steve..... Thank you so much and what a wonderful coincidence that passing the shop is what my dad, were he still alive, would be pleased to see, a Robert's tram car....
