  1. Was that the one at the corner of Carwood Lane & Crescent? It was known to us as Rose Cottage , Dave and Pete Simmonite lived very close to it.
  2. Osgathorpe Rd & Crabtree Close meet at Barnsley Rd, at this is (or was) a toll cottage that was added to Barnsley Rd as people were ivading the one at Abbeyfield Park to reach the ever growing steel works in the Attercliffe area. They used Osgathorpe, Carwood Lane down pass the Hallcar Tavern on to what's now Carwood Rd to Brightside Lane.
  3. My wife worked at Richard Sons wholesale warehouse at the bottom of Snig Hill, on the same side until about '69. If it's the one with a down stairs room, she remembers they did a good pancake.
  4. Went a few times with the Pitsmoor club in mid 50's, with my uncle Ernest Gregory. The best description I've ever heard was in a poem by Jasper Carrott, brilliant.

  6. This weird, I started at ESC ,Sept '60 in the training shop, went to Granville with Geoff Stringfellow, There was a really tall guy ,I think he was called Brian Pickering ( he later joined the police force). After I was transferred to Central area maintenance where Geoff's dad Jim was a rough fitter, We covered the heavy plate mill, CGF Crank shaft press,all cranes , furnaces in that area. From there it was off to Pond St to complete C & G M/c Shop Engineering .

  10. It was certainly around in the 50's, the above seems to make sense. May be it could be connected to door to dor salesmen knocking to drum up customers?
  11. Flying plank at the breakers (shudders before reversing) Looks like early 1900's or the 30's in Sheffield !!!!!
  12. Same for us, although dad had a gramophone in there, boy was I in trouble when I broke any of his 78's. Most visits in there were to put a shilling in the meter.
