Hi Paul,, The sight of this menu  prompted me to dig out my copy of the Last Tram souvenir published by the Star on 1st October 1960, and look at all the great photos of the era of Sheffield trams 1873 to 1960.

Hi Bob and Steve,

Thanks for those Postings. It's over 60yrs since that fateful night in October 1960 but those pictures brought back a lot of childhood memories.

Cheers,

Wazzie Worrall

What was a bus showing "2 Elm Tree" doing on Abbeydale Road near Broadfield Road. This was the Outer Circle route and only touched Abbeydale Road briefly after descending Carterknowle Road and then turning off almost straight away up Woodseats Road.

Was there a diversion on or was the driver lost?? Who knows?

I think that would be a short runner (duplicate) picking up service at Woodseats Road bottom. I remember working something like that on part day duties, and picking up loads of school kids on route..

I've still got mine, too. But I wonder who still has a bent penny (if you have, you'll know what I mean).

We put six inch nails on the tracks and fashioned  miniature swords out of them, they looked great to our eyes.
