There are a couple of books by Leonard Widdowson and they are full of photos of old Woodhouse.

It gets mentioned a lot on here, but have you looked at www.picturesheffield.com - not sure if they cover Woodhouse but you can buy pictures from them to frame.

I know that the Print and Design Shop on Sharrowvale Road stock loads of books with photo's of old Sheffield and from all area's of Sheffield. Why don't you give them a ring: 2679402 they are very helpful and I bet if they haven't got what you are looking for they'll know the place that does.

Good Luck!

www.picturesheffield.com has 10,000 historic images of Sheffield.

I found 136 B&W images when searching for 'Woodhouse'

You can order prints or get the low-res pictures free if you're not using them for commercial use.

There is a Stamp shop on the gallery of the 'Fish Market' which also sells postcards and old photographs of Sheffield.

You gain access to the shop by going up the stairs from outside the market next to the main entrance.

The shop hasn't a display as such and looks as if it is unoccupied but it's not.

Best of luck, I do hope this helps you.

Happy Days!
If he hasn't got the pictures you want, I'm sure he would be able to point you in the right direction.
