I strongly suspect we've missed hundreds if not thousands .... well spotted, please keep any updates/corrections/additions coming. We never claimed a perfect listing - just one more complete and more ambitious than anyone else has attempted. Both books on the subject have a mere smattering of keepers listed.

Today I went to take a photo of what The Green Dragon ,Fargate, looks like now. It is still the same building but obviously with shops .

Just past these buildings I went up Exchange Gateway to see if I could get any other pictures. There was an old nondescript building which must have been something in the past but to my surprise there were some large windows at the back of the shops.

I have been past Exchange Gateway thousands of times and never thought to look up there. This is what finding about Sheffield history is all about.

Just to confirm, Picture Sheffield are quite happy for us to post links to the pictures on their site (it makes a hell of a difference to their hit rate) but have asked that we don't post them directly on Sheffield History as they do not hold the copyright on all the photo's.

Neddy, if you find the pic you want and copy and paste the address into your posts, that works fine.

My dad went up that same alley in 1976 - he wrote on the back of this photo "rear of the Old Green Dragon Hotel"
