Here's how much I'm in my prime. I was 9 years old when we went to see Broadway Melodies of 1939 at the Pavilion on the night of December 12th 1940. The air raid siren went and like normal we all ignored it cos we'd had lots of false alarms.All of a sudden the guns opened up and bombs began falling on the city. We were directed to an underground shelter and stayed there all night while an Irish cop gave us a running commentary from the surface. Attercliffe was fairly lucky that night though some people were kiled in Brightside. hi Buck my dad was born on bowing st of rippon road down the cliff and mam came of bradford st dad brother played football for liverpool pre war and then just after the war he moved to sunderland his name was bernard ramsden dads was Albert i knwo that when Mam & da wre courting they went to the Pavilion aswell

My great grand parents were licensees of the Station many , many moons ago. infact it could be at least a 100 years ago. We lived in Bodmin Street in the 1930s to 1950s and I can remember as a kid being sent to the Station around dinner time on a Sunday with a bottle to get draught beer for dad. They used to put a paper seal over the stopper so that we couldn't take a swig of the beer. Can also remember the Smiths potato crisps we used to buy there with the little blue paper twist of salt, it was a far better idea than the salted crisps we get today.
My mother's parents lived in Steadfast street in the 1930s. their name was Reith, grandma was blind and so when the war started they came to live with us.

:) jus revisitin the tramp story,as i said we moved 2 brinny in 63 & there used be a tramp there [sounds awful dunnit-much prefer gentleman of the road but im'e such a lazy typer-lol]oviously as children we were warned 2 stay away from such types which made them all the more interesting.any way in latish 60s me & my m8 curley were walkin thru the village with this chap marching behind us,curley 4 a laugh said watch this & dropped a ha'penny,a minute later there was a loud shout,we turned & this guy started runnin after us,this must have been a wonderful sight 2 any locals watching seeing the local skinheads complete with boots'n braces leggin it up bonnet lane with sheer fright etched on their faces,any how he caught us,held his hand out & said excuse me sir u dropped this,well as if! after that we befriended him & he used 2 tell stories about his ww2 experiences el alamine & such,we even visited him at his home which was an old air raid shelter down the 8foot lane where the british oxygen works is.when we asked his name he used 2 salute give his service number & say douglas talbot-sir,military style.wonder what happened 2 him.p.s. never did get round 2 askin if he ever lodged in our outside loo on woodbourne rd.

the only pub I can think of at the attercliffe end of staniforth rd would be the Staniforth Arms, which is now a buffet restaurant. (hope that's helpful?)

there are two or three pubs at the top end, (greenland Road end) whose names I cannot recall.

thanks for the names of the pubs at the top end, by greenland road.

didn't think the Robin Hood was on Staniforth Road, I always thought its postal address was on Attercliffe Common...?

the carlton was the one on the opposite side of attercliffe common to the robin hood, wasn't it? a white-painted building, with black railings if i remember?

the D&P was also on attercliffe common, too...

As I say, I can only think of one pub on Staniforth Road at the attercliffe common end, and that is the one that's now the restaurant./ buffet place.

Not read many of the Attercliffe threads & I used to live at Parson Cross, but worked down there as a kid at Brook Shaws garage, who rented the old.... I think it was called the Palace Theatre..... it's a shame but we used to store new cars in the bottom level where the seats used to be, looking onto the stage which was still there.
In the upper part..... was it the balcony? There were still seats which were used as the stores & car parts were laid out all over the old seats.
I used to love exploring the old place on my own at dinner times, I used to climb up into the towers that overlooked Attercliffe Rd..... didn't see the danger at the time but they were crumbling & ready to fall down, the old place was pulled down not long after.
I often used to go into the Herbalist & play the juke box in there, I guy used to sell fruit on a stall in the alley at the side, Alfredo's barbers next door.
I used to fetch my "errands" from Shentons the bakers, used to have our Xmas do's in the Queens Head...... Banners was heaven, I used to love their record dept.
Everywhere was exciting, from Staniforth Rd to Newhall Rd & beyond, pubs, shops, cafes....I used to love the "exchange" shops..... it was magic, a lovely atmosphere, as they say "it aint the same"........ Aaaah memories. :love:

Hello PlainTalker,

In the 1891 census it is 62 Worksop Road; not sure the street numbering may have changed since then - cheers

if it's on worksop road, then that must be the original name for the pub that's now called Farah's.

06-10-2006, 22:53
Hi PlainTalker - thank you SO much - we have used your lead and found this website - the street numbering must have changed or something - as it is now 74 Worksop Road!

Can't believe it is still going over 100 years later!

Thanks again for helping us out!

My mothers family coincidentally were called Brookes and were born and bred in Don Place, off Newall Rd. Three brothers, Sid, Dave and John along with a sister Joan. They lived next to a transport companies' yard, and their neighbour had a daughter called Linda Sully. Had some happy times there, those skates at the skating ring were designed to go around in circles I'm sure. Any relation Brooksy ?

I think this is only about my third post on the forum but I've just read lots of the posts, (not all:hihi: ) and recongnised various place names I haven't thought about for years.
I actually grew up on Brightside Lane, just round the corner from Fell Street and parallel with Don Road. Betty Tuckwood's name just came back to me, I went to Newhall Road School, and think she must have been a play mate, I was born in 1949, my name then was Dodd with an older brother Ken and two younger sisters who were too small to remember even living there. We moved to Firth Park in 1960.

Hope you don't mind me asking a few questions.

Anybody out there remember me or more importantly my Dad Cyril Dodd.
I have been doing quite well with Family History and want to find out more about my dads parents who lived at Attercliffe from 1916 onwards.
They were Robert and Nellie Dodd, 404 Attercliffe Road. My Grandad Robert Dodd had a shop and eventually ran the business of Bespoke Tailor. There were seven children in all, Cyril, Elsie, Roy, Dennis, Kathleen, Maisie and Jim.

Anyone out there remember anything??? that might help me.

Hi There, I find the topic on Attercliffe great. I spent a lot of my early child hood there and then went back in my teans., I lived on Westbury St. and they used to have the anual fair and merrygo rounds there. Used to go to High Hazels Park and attend the Darnall Medical /aid parade. Dancing at the Astoria and yes John Banners was a good shop, and the little pie shop outside Attercliffe Baths. My Grandparents were all born on Alfred Road I think the name was Fulwood and Pope. Great memories these

Regards vera p..s. Anyone remember Huntsmans Garden School

I lived in Colwall St. and went to Huntsman's Gardens from 1942 to 1952. Miss Breach was the Headmistress at the infant school when I started. We had some really great teachers, Mr Bramall, Mr Ward and Mr Lakin come to mind. Some of my classmates were, Ronnie Eaton, Martin Whitehead, Brian Tucket, Teddy Murat, Harry Major, Leslie Kiddy, Keith Milne, Raymond Lawson to name a few. I emigrated to Australia in 1966. It would be good to here of any news about the guys I mentionedfrankandmal@bigpond.com

Starting at the bottom of Staniforth Rd. The Carlton. Dog & Partridge, Horse & Jockey, Victoria, Queens Head, Kings Head, one next to the Weslian Hall I can't remember the name of, The Omnibus. Travellers, Ball Inn plus four or five along Worksop Rd. before the aqueduct. Your friend was dead right you would be well and truly Brahms and List by the time you got as far as the Globe pictures.frankandmal@bigpond.com

Hi Frankkettell, I think the pub you meant next to the Weslyan Hall was the Station, my great grandparents were licensees there long long time ago and my grandparents were licensees of the Omnibus for a while during the war. I also went to Huntsmans Gardens from 1937 to 1944 as did my two sisters Anne and Betty and also my brother Frank. We may have crossed paths somewhere along the way

Is there anyone out there who lived in Colwall St. in Attercliffe. Some names I remember are the O'Brien's, who were my cousins, there were lots of them. Frank Hirst was a rag and bone man and he had two daughters Linda and Violet. Mr Mac. used to sit us on a dustbin and cut our hair for free. He also used to bring his piano out in the street and play. That must have been a big celebration like the end of the war. Old Mrs Fisher had a free ticket to the Palace Theatre as she had such a laud engaging laugh that she got everyone laughing.The comedians loved her. Thompson's, Major's, Roger's, Noughtcliffe, Mrs Noughtcliffe was a real larger than character. There are more, does anyone remember others?

Judging by the dates you must be a bit older than me. I am 69 and was born in 1937. If you have any younger brothers or sisters I may know them. At school even a year made a vast difference to the contacts we had with others.

I remember Tommy Antcliffe, he was related to my cousins the O'Brien's who lived in Colwall St. opposite Banners. We called him little Tommy, big Tommy was Tommy O'Brien, or Fat Tommy when he wasn't listening. I think that Tommy's mother was Mary Antcliffe but I am not sure where they lived.

There was Dr.Cooper just of Attercliffe Road, we would see the doctor and if we had a prescription we would walk up to Raymond Hall's the chemist on Staniforth Road. He would always chat to you while you where waiting and seemed to now everything and everybody, a lovely man.
You are right everyone trusted Raymond Hall more than they trusted the doctor. I remember going there with my Mam.

having grown up on attercliffe in the 60 s andearly 70 s it was sad 2 see how it declined in the late 70s. recently tho the area seems 2 be given a new lease of life, with alot off investment going in down there do folk think it mighnt take off again.
I left Attercliffe in 1953 to live in Shiregreen. As I was 15 at the time all my mates were in Attercliffe so I always used to go back to socialise. I left England in 1966 and have lived in Australia every since. I first went back to Attercliffe in the 80's and wished I never had because all my memories were shattered. What a sorry place now from the wonderful vibrant place it used to be. There were many characters, is anyone old enough to remember the Duke of Darnal?

Perhaps you can help me? I seem to remember a horse trough somewhere near there, or his my memory playing tricks on me.

The horse trough was just outside the baths on Leeds Rd.

When I was a kid we were all scared to death at the mention of the Chinnies Mob. Do you remember the Roberts family from somewhere in the same area? Little Brian had polio as a kid and he was carried everywhere by his brothers when he was tiny. As he got older they pulled him along on a trolley. You remember the ones we made out of pram wheels and orange boxes. Brian evetually got a wheel chair and he terrorised us with a catapult. In our teens we became good friends, what a wonderful world it was then.

slightly off topic but does anyone no what that big old building across from banners used to be. a few years ago it sold antiques but i came past it today and it was advertised as luxury apartments for sale. if anyone nos what it originally was let us no, cheers brooksy.

The buildings across from Banners, starting from Clowall St. There was a dry cleaners called Martins, next was a chemist, then a tailors, Sim Stanklers,he was good too, Applewhites grocery, Olivers butchers, Schweps furniture, Easifit shoes, Halfords bike shop at the top of Sleaford St. I may have missed one or two as I am going back over 50 years. Hope this helps.

just been chatting to a mate and he reckons there was an herblest near banners. ican remember a small shop near the horse and jockey but thought it was a paper shop. anyone settle the argument.
The Herbalist was Marsdens. The old man ran it for years then his son took over. We used to buy penny drinks there or a hot oxo for threepence. It was a meeting place for all the kids. Ther was a pie shop next door too and there pies were fantastic.

I never thought about that atlex, but you are correct. The Earl probably owned the Staniforth when it was first built.

I remember miss renshaw very scary woman I was so glad when I moved out of her class . Do you remember mr marshall I dont think he ever used the cane but he made you suffer in others ways like having to stand in the corner on one leg or holding your arms out at shoulder level but he was much better than miss renshaw.

I was brought up in attercliffe, i lived on Palmer st and Frances St, we moved out of frances st in about 1974. I went to Huntmens gardens school. My sister was in the brownies in the church just behind the royal bank of scotland (i think). I think they used to be a bingo hall on the corner of one of the shops near the crossroads on bottom of staniforth. Didnt the littlewoods shop used to be called Hitchens??? I remember going in there and banners, was hussle and bussle then. I remember the next door neighbours kid once reaching for the sparklers behind the tea pot and knocked the scolding hot pot over my foot, going to hospital and having the tea leaves picked off with tweazers (ouch) then spending bonfire night sat outside in an armchair with my foot on a stool. Amy pierripoint i believe used to run a fruit shop down attercliffe, opposite side of road to banners, also the wooden carts on the street corners, Amy's remaining years was spent in a residential home on manchester road. I may be wrong about some of the things above, as i left attercliffe when i was about 4 as they were knocking down our house, which was just off worksop road i think

hi i know this is a very LONG shot but does anyone have any
photos from way back when say 50's-70's of st bartholomes church
top of carbrook street.
i lived over the wall a yard with just 5 houses in it. Newton terrace.
and would love a pic of our house which was at the side of the church over the wall.i only have one of my family in the yard itself so have no photos of the houses.
and even when you try and find it on road/street search it doesan't come up. like it never existed.just wondered if anyone had any pictures of the church, and maybe our house was in the shot...
thanks.

I was born on Ripon Street, just around the corner from Woodbourn Road School (born in 1961).
Do you remember a few of the teachers there e.g.
Miss Hodgson, Mr Woodcock, Mrs. Ring and the Headmaster Mr. Sims.

I'm younger than you but also went to Woodbourn School (I was born on Jessell St 1969) Here's some more, do you remember any of these? Mrs. Monahan, Mrs Anyon(scary!), Miss Barnes, Mrs Tracy,Mr. Burns, Mrs Whitehouse, Mr Powell, I remember Mrs Ring and Mr Simms was still head teacher when I was there. :thumbsup: Did they have the school song when you were there? something like,

We go to Woodbourn School just up the road
Oh yes, just up the road
It's terribly grimy and terribly old
Oh yes, terrbily old
Etc etc etc.......

Hi there,
recently found this site and have really enjoyed reading the various pages and posts ,especially the Attercliffe thread on the History and Expat page.
Dont know if anyone remembers my parents Roy and Ellen Hannan,they kept the Fox House pub on Shirland Lane from about
1967/68 till approx'76 when they moved to The Queens Head on Atterliffe Road which they had 'till about 1981/82.
.At that time Attercliffe must have had more pubs per square mile than any other place on the planet.
It was a great place to grow up,and I still enjoy going down the 'cliffe whenever I get back home to visit

Had my 21st birthday in Queens head in 1975, in the room upstairs. Pity it's closed now, Attercliffe seem very popular for a night out.

do you remember miss deakin yes i remember miss deakin on my first day at school iwas in her class and i will never forget i was so scared she let me go to the toilet and i ran home clee girl
Hi Clee Girl

You won't know me as I wasn't born until 1951 but my brother david rogerson was born in 1943 and went to carbrook school. He, my other brother Keith and me all were unfortunate enough to be in miss deakins class. I got a smack on my first day for missing a letter out of my name. I wouldn't have minded but there are many people even now, have trouble spelling Jacqueline!! She was horrid and it's such a shame as every time I go through Attercliffe and see the school, all I remember is getting smacked. My older brother Keith escaped out of a window once while in her class. She had locked him in there for leaving a tap running in the toilets!!! I wonder what the authorities would make of that now. Miss Carr and Miss Middleton were lovely though.

yes i use to live three doors away the other doctor was dr taylor. one of them use to have a poodle with him

{QUOTE =Peter} I know Dr Botros very well, he was a very good doctor, many were treated successfuly and was liked by many, his colleague in the practice was Dr Tailor, there were many articles written about him and his family in the local newspaper. He married Florence Carter and had three children, the elder Dr Sophie Botros is a well known Proffessor in London University the second daughter in London I do not know much about her and a boy John is a Barrister. Dr Labib Botros lived in 32 Cavendish Rd before he passed away 1975. He came from a high caliber family, his grand father was governor of a state in Egypt. His father was the Solicitor general for the Egyptian Government 1936, he lived in Sheffield since 1918 where he studied Medicine in Sheffield University. He was really bright and intelligent when he invested his income wisely, which made him a successful businessman as well, besides he was kind and generous in helping many financially.

I allways found him nice even though i was only very young he use to give me injections in the butt each day. He always stayed for tea with mum and dad we lived in the same yard as his practice. very nice to hear a bit of his history something mum and dad may have known they were quite frendly with him too. they were Betty and David Beresford from cartonville fisheries.

I remember John Botros very well. In the late 70's whilst still at school I had a part-time job at Uncle Sam's Chuck Wagon, Ecclesall Road, of which John was the proprietor. At that time is was an extremely busy and affluent concern and in many respects a long way ahead of it's time in terms of the fast food business.

John Botros was a tall and in some ways charismatic figure who was well presented with a moustache. I usually saw him in pinstripe suits (a typical trait of someone in the legal profession). The car he drove at the time was the famous "Citroen DS" in black. He was married to a very attractive blonde lady called "Kate" who I saw on a few occasions. They had a daughter called "Holly" and I heard they lived in Holmesfield (or was it Dronfield?)

John Botros himself was quite a likeable and honest person but unfortunately was subject to the ravages of drink. He was also a womaniser and had many adulterous affairs - some of them to the waitresses at the establishment he owned. My father did extensive work for him in the 70's which included work at the restaurant which included a train that circled the eating area. It is still there today and I often smile when I go in aware that my dad was the "creator" so to speak!

One of the investors in the 70's was Dave Allen (not the comedian!) the man who then ran Josephines and numerous gaming establishments. For some reason the partnership seemed to fade away although I never found out why.

I do know that Botros himself was a keen footballer and seemed to keep himself in good shape. Whilst at an interview for a legal post in Sheffield some years ago I heard that John Botros was the legal adviser to "Frank Warren" the boxing promoter and was there on the night of the almost fatal attack on Warren's life.

It has been stated that John Botros was a barrister. At the time I knew him I believed he was a Solicitor unless his status in the legal profession since then had been elevated. I have heard he currently resides in London or Oxon.

(Forgive me for not reading all of the 53 pages in this thread)

I got 'a wander up the cliffe' and 'another..' for Christmas to add to my enormous collection of old Sheffield books.

What a great read, it seems almost unimaginal now how Attercliffe could have been so densely(sp) populated quite so recently.(to someone of my age)
