Welcome to the Site, Lil48; where are these buildings please ?

There is further writing visible above the second photo, hence the request for an address.

Don't worry about posting stuff in the wrong place, we have people here willing and able to put posts into the right place; known here as "Link Fairy's"

So where is William the high class confectioner?

Notice there is another sign in this picture saying "Beware of the dog"

Is that to stop kids from trying to nick his sweets lol

... a lot of these "brickwork" advertisements have "come to life" once again , fairly recently , as many have been covered for years by the large "advertising hoardings" we have all become used to - with the advertising company changing the adverts occasionally with paper and glue "banners"- (bill posting - similar to wallpapering ,but on a larger and more precarious scale !)

Dont know all the info , but a lot of these "placards" have been noticeably taken down over the last few years , revealing the ghostly lettering of ads gone by which were hand painted directly onto the brickwork.

I think that should be Williams. The S has faded away because it wasn't protected by the hoarding.

Is it my imagination or could it have said DORA above.

Anyway I can't find any William or Williams confectioners up to now.

Yes it was a sign over the painted sign. The plastic sign being broken off with

the remaining piece left with part of the telephone number still on.

You can plainly see this as you walk under it.

Hatfield House Lane at Shiregreen on the side of a house now sadly faded. I remember this from my youth in the 1970's and is still just visable for a firm of Auctioneers called Bell's hence the bell lol

Hi mbyastroman, welcome to the site, I hope you find it of interest.

We have topics on most subjects related to Sheffield, so post your school memories, your work memories or anything Sheffield related that people would be interested in.

Welcome to the Site mbyastroman and thanks for the picture of

George William Gillings premises known at 483 Middlewood Road in 1905, 1911 and 1911. Never seen a picture though, so Thanks again.

{Sure I should be able to place Marion Road, being a Hillsborough-boy, but we'll have to hope a Map-Fairy passes this way soon :rolleyes: }

This is more or less opposite the tram terminus, I think there's a garage across the road from it

maybe Gilders, a long way from the Park Hotel.

It looks as though someone beat me to it. Iv'e been going to take this picture for a few weeks but it

was always so dismal so I took it Tuesday.

Welcome to the site mbyastroman. Did you notice the other one two roads further down? just

blank and white?
