Hoping someone has a picture of the Victoria Hotel which was on Addy Street.  ?    Nothing on picture Sheffield, or internet.

My 2g grandfather ran it for a few years.

Sheffield Archives hold 2 (not great) photos but there are copyright issues. Maybe a discussion with them could get you copies? Say a charitable donation and in recognition they provide a couple of reasonable pictures? Also the Archives may have photos that are not on PictureSheffield.

Thank you for the replies and tip about the possible photo's at the archives.

He was John Henry Fellows.   He took over the Victoria in December 1925 after the council had knocked down his
previous beer house, the New Music Hall Tavern, to make way for the Sheffield War Memorial.

He ran the Vic until his death at the age of 75 in 1929.    Then his wife continued as landlady until her death
in 1935.

You probably know his wife in the Victoria was his second wife?

The wife he ran the Victoria with, was actually his third wife.     He only had children with his first wife who died in 1896.

A little snippet from the newspapers...Mary Elizabeth Fellows broke her ankle after falling down stairs in the pub in 1906.
