I see it now:

It's Bungay Street Goes (went) between South Street and Granville Street. Norwich Street comes in from the Right. Map 4 shows it.

This link to picturesheffield that Richard posted is worthy of a bit of discussion, whats to be seen and as exactly where is it

I think the houses going left to right are on Granville Ln which will make the view point somewhere near the junction of South Rd and Shrewsbury Rd

Here is a larger version of the street plan

studying the photo http://www.picturesh...jpgh/t01896.jpg

you can pick out to the left, the cathedral and the extension to the GPO where Pond St and Flat St diverge (theres a bus), if you join these with a straight line back to parkhill you get this

Which makes the houses going left to right Norwich St or Bungay Ln
