Sheffield Bus/tram Stops

Recommended Posts

Hi does anyone have any close up shots of 1950's /60s Sheffield bus and tram stops, and shelters? Particularly the signs and styles of pole used.

....several pages of superb pics , to sift through here , to check out all the street furniture !!!!!.......

Quite a few to be seen on Picture Sheffield by searching for bus shelter and bus stop.

I particularly like this one, on Ridgeway Road (as I remember it well) and there is a nice shot of of some stops on The Moor

The answer to the double deck sign is Worksop Road - there will have been others around the city , the one shown was for the railway bridge and canal bridge / aqueduct

Just found the following in my files
