69 bus, the building behind looks distinctive, but where was/is it?

Edited by SteveHB

Did this one slip through the net? Too easy? Too obscure? :)

I would have thought the date says 1886, but could it be 1836?

Well there's another one here, courtesy of Google Streetview. This one's on a main road though and well known.

Is yours in a park somewhere ?

Not in a park no, but very tucked away and it isn't clear what or where it was serving. It looks like mine is missing a handle though!

Little Norton eh ?

A relative of mine used to live in the top flat in the building next door. He told me they lived in Green-hill and got most upset when I insisted on calling it Grennel. :rolleyes:

Seems that the chap who built these two Villas had a love of American Poet Longfellow, but just where are they?

:ph34r: I don't think so unless they are old photos - I am safely ensconced in Carlisle at the moment and I haven't walked along Crookesmoor Road since December 2010. :ph34r:

The answer came to me via the interweb and the Ramblers Association :o

I wish I was in Sheffield - I could do with an aimless wander around my city at the moment.

I'll tell you a couple of stories about it, when someone comes up with the answer ;-)

Any clues to where this fantastic Ironwork is?

That's tricky. Not only do I not know where it is, but I'm also not sure what it is! I'm guessing neither photo is taken fronm the ground floor though.

From all those walkways between the two buildings it looks like somewhere industrial that needed to get stuff from one to the other without having to go down one set of stairs then up another set. It also looks like a place where natural light was a requirement, perhaps for someone working under each window, hence all the doors. Maybe each was an early form of tiny industrial unit used by 'little mesters' or something like that?

The railings look like they were made by a blacksmith because they're neither bolted nor welded together, so I'd guess the place pre-dates arc welding or any kind.

The excellent paintwork makes me think it's somewhere that is now open to the public, but probably wasn't originally.

Am I close with any of that?

The safety shutters suggest the rear of shops with flats above.

Is this close up of some writing a clue? - Lord Of The Rings, Magi Nation.

(The writing is on the inside, I've mirrored it to make it readable)

It put me in mind of here on Cross Burgess Street, rear of Pinstone Street (obviously not the same place) but similar sort of location and age.
