I had forgotten about this on

City Rd

Courtesy Google SV

Thats the place Stuart.

You must have wagged school dinners and gone on City Road Front with Frithy to know which building it was lol

Had a look at Manor Top shops and they have changed ownership so much I can't remember which exact shop it was any more.

Tried checking on Google Street view but see what you think.

The CO-OP at Manor Top was quite a large building if my memory serves me right. Looking at Google SV there are 2 actual buildings I think it was the building closest to the library. I do remember in the early 70's there was a cafe at the end nearest the library, always got a load of Post Office Telephone vans parking around the back.

I think the Co-Op was part of the boarded up central section between the tanning place and Fultons Foods.

The end one nearest the Library (actually the Health Centre first, then the Library), the tanning centre, was for many years Mitchells DIY and had bits of wood and timber outside. May have been a cafe at some stage though.

Between the tanning place and the Health centre is a driveway that lead down to the rear of Pete Harrisons parents house.

The blue paintwork looks like the colour the CO-OP used around the 90's

Thanks to DaveH, a then and now picture of the S&E Co-op at Morland Road, Herdings.

The part of the shop on the far right of the photo was the Co-op butchers which was run separately to the main supermarket.

The same Herdings S&E building today.

It looks like at least part of it is now a boxing club! :o

If you keep loosing things off the clipboard when you flip sites.

Excellent Photo Steve - I've never seen that. I think Page Hall was also the site of the "Pitsmoor Tram Terminus" before the line was extended up to Lane Top.

Perhaps someone mentioned them and I missed them, but there were two in the Ecclesfield area, one at the bottom of Barnsley Rd, opposite the end of Colley Rd., and another in Ecclesfield proper on High St. Also there was one in Wisewood at the top of Laird Rd., on Rural Lane

Will need to get another picture then and reclassify as still open.

There was a shop just above which was open with some shady characters going in and out

I thought it was a betting shop, - but then again this is the Manor :o
