Mystery Location


Recommended Posts

The wheelybin suggests that it is on street level, but there is a level below, so somewhere with basements ?

What does the red and white sign say ? Possibly "Money G----"

"Basements" Isn't that the posh word vox? :)

I have a couple of photos that were taken in one of the cellars, before the building was renovated.

lol

I used the term Basement because there appear to be large windows, below what appears to be ground level, which suggests that the rooms are useable for other than storage. Cellars are more commonly associated with an underground room devoid, or almost devoid, of natural light. Originally used for storage only.

Difficult to define, but I'll bow to your first hand knowledge of the building and revert to my working class roots.

Cellars they are then. lol

MoneyGram, a money wiring service.

According to their website there are about 45 MoneyGram outlets within the Sheffield Centre area, 'so that narrows it down a bit.

Not posting this one in the "then and now" thread then?

Old Thread. NEW Post.

Interesting, as always.

I am still trying to work out the whereabouts of the FIRST Photograph(s) in this Post. I thought it was Southey/Southey Green Lane at first, but it can't be.

Where abouts is it, please?
