Another Human League photo taken on Furnace Hill in Sheffield. Is there a reason the Human League photos were so often shot on Furnace Hill?

Was there a recording studio there or something?

Does anyone recognise where these Human League photos will have been taken?

Remember buying the single 'Being Boiled' - but can't remember from where in Sheffield - and later their second album 'Travelogue' and subsequently losing interest when they moved into their well-known pop-synth direction

Did have the pleasure of meeting Phil Oakey twice - once by chance in a pub on West Street and again when I was working at the mighty Record Collector in Broomhill when he dropped by to see Steve Fellows - massively underrated guitarist with the equally massively underrated COMSAT ANGELS -  who was also working there at the time. It's high time someone wrote a piece about Steve and The Comsats
