Nice work, I'm still waiting to know where Wilson Peck were before they were where we all know they were .....

I think they were on Pinstone Street, on the gable end of what is now a Bank, you can still see the painted advert.

Gable end of what was Wilson Pecks Beethoven House, you can just about read the Wilson Peck name. When they moved into the building on the corner opposite they transferred the name Beethoven House which stood there for years until they closed it was then re-named Yorkshire House.

An old one, but I love this comparison. (might take a minute to load the transition fully):

Great comparison. Only a few buildings still standing from the old days.

Could anyone help me place this one and do a 'now' version of where this would be? Photo shows Junction of Wilstrop Road & Shirland Lane, Darnall, Sheffield

Something a bit like this, I think. What was this end of Wilstrop Road appears to now be Shirland Court. Most of the other side roads have gone, and the route of Shirland Lane in the distance has changed.

As it was,with the arrow giving an idea as to where the photographer was looking. Tockwith Road is the road just behind the arrow. From Map 182

Not got a clue, part 2.

 

Second (recently purchased) postcard; here in the forlorn hope someone can help identify the location and then someone ...

 

Lane, junction, tree, bushes ...

 

from Sydney to Miss B Johnson, IOM, August 1907

 

Attempts at transcription gratefully received; should be easy.

 

[i may have posted letters to/from Miss Johnson ages ago on here (could they be on the "I got this"-thread ?); if so, I bought those in the late 70's, the postcards I bought last week].

I was trawling back through threads last night and came across this from 2009 and noticed that it had not been resolved at the time.

I know this sounds ridiculous now but I’m sure I’ve seen this photo before somewhere else.

It’s purported to be a view up Bocking Lane from the junction with Abbey Lane at the turn of the century.

The wording would actually fit with that.

I appreciate it seems impossible to envisage that now but the similarity between the photo on the card and the one I’d seen earlier is striking
