Hello Everyone


Recommended Posts

Guest middy

I am pleased to have found and joined what looks like an excellent site for those interested in all things ''Sheffield''.

I was born and lived in Walkley and later at Lowedges.I have lived in different parts of the country over the years but now live in Derbyshire. I am particularly interested in Walkley and Crookes areas as these were where most of my family lived.

I have already found a couple of gems on the site. A number of shots of the street i was born on (demolished in the 70's) appear in the Slade film ''Flame'' which was a topic discussed a couple of years ago.To my knowledge, after years of looking, this is the first set of pictures i have come across and perhaps they are the only ones in existance. I have since bought the DVD.Out of interest if ADMIN is still keeping this film topic and locations under review i could provide some more information on the topic? In addition I have also dug out my old Full Monty video and guided by the topic notes have seen shots of areas i lived in that before i had missed.

Great site and very helpful members.

Hello Middy and welcome to Sheffield History,

Hello and Welcome, I'm an Upperthorpe/Walkley/Hillsborough born and raised Chap myself.

No topic ever closed; if you have more to add well, just chip in. There's recent posting about South Road, not sure where, I lose everything immediately on posting ...

Hi Mickjj. Regarding the bus pass, I got two bites of the cherry as I was given a staff pass when I left Mainline in 1994. Regarding the maths, I am two years out somewhere as the year of my birth was 1944. W/A.

Thanks everyone for the welcome.

I'll post this comment on the FLAME film link but to also say here that in reference to the street i mentioned 2 stills are shown by ADMIN of a blue van carrying the Group Flame ( ie Slade). This is Otley Street,Walkley and whilst i left there in the 50's little seemed to have changed by 1974 when the film was made.
