I like that, wonder how many will spot it? lol

Well there you are, if its good enough for him its good enough for anyone!

I have lived in Worksop for about 20 years but I will always miss Sheffield and when people ask me where Im from I still dont say Worksop, its always Sheffield. :) :)

Full Edit is Quick when just text is involved, but a hell of a lot slower if a 1.5 MB photo file is loading up.

'Remember' how long it took when we were exchangeing Map bits

Bugger, imagine how much time I've wasted !!!!

Twelve 1959 Maps

Let's see if there is any interest in this.

I have twelve maps all dated 1959 and we have the permission of the Ord. Survey people to scan them and post them (with the usual Crown Copyright and Sheffield History watermark).

Are we interested in these before I start scanning them ?

They are

3093 Oughtibridge

3079 Totley

2898/2998 Old Haywoods/Middlewood Road (double sized map)

2978 Baslow Road/Moodwood Lane

3279/3379 Mickley (double sized map)

3589NW Shirecliffe Road

3176 Millthorpe

3192 Middlewood/Great Hollins Wood

3958NE Stradbroke Road/Hastilar Road South

2798 Stocksbridge

3481 Greenhill (1:2500)

4694NW Whinney Hill

Please let me know (by posting here) if it's a go-er, messages will eventually be deleted ...

Scan when you are ready lol

Yes get them scanned Richard, I am hoping that eventually as they come out of copyright you will have a full set of maps to fill in all the gaps. Its sods law that the sections of map I particularly want to see are on the missing bits so I am hoping that they will eventually become available and that it will not be like the classic jigsaw puzzle of a nude lady which is destined to always be short of that last, crucial, missing piece!

They were purchased as a group of out of copyright, 1950's maps - they kindly provided more than originally stated, but it deceases in quantity as the years go by. It does continue into the 80's and 90's but we need Copyright approval for even 1960. Your jigsaw of interesting bits might take some time yet.
