Aerial View of Sheffield Midland

Recommended Posts

Right I'm off on my jolly's for 2 weeks. B)

He is a challenge

I think this should be easy to date, but can anyone find or take a modern equivalent to do a Then & Now. It must have been taken from the Polytechnic (Hallam University)

Early 60s U would think:

The Cafe is still there

They are digging the hole for the subways

Definatley after April 1960 as there are two AEC/Alex RVs on the 60

No tram tracks

Pre rebuilding of sheffield midland station

Claywood flats been built (The tower blocks behind the station)

WH Smiths newspaper warehouse is there

The last car in the picture looks like a Hillman Imp, first produced in 1963. Just out of interest, that lone building at the rear of the station on Shrewsbury Road, it stood derelict for years before it was renovated in the 80s. Does anyone know its history as it was the only building out of hundreds on that site to escape demolition in the 1950s. W/E.

Thought from info in the Norfolk Park Estate thread that Claywood Flats were built in 1966.

Steve HB posted a picture of them being built by Gleesons.

So therefore its before 1966 then which is about right so taking the car into account its after 1963 and before 1966

The implication of my post #7 was that it was AFTER 1966 and not before, so May 1968 sounds about right to me.
