    Wadsley Bridge doctors surgery had a father and son team, Dr Panniker and DR Peter Panniker, both were very nice. I think Dr Peter ( the son) married a doctor who also worked there (Dr female Panniker) and then their son Dr Andrew Panniker took over, so I heard. I only went a couple of times as a kid and the receptionist gave you a numbered card and you had to sit and wait til the people with lower numbers had been in then it was you turn, very depressing if you were number 28 at 8.00am when they had only just opened, where did the other 27 people appear from! It was a dark gloomy waiting room with just a few chairs and a table with a couple of mags, most people stood outside smoking and would stick their head round the door and say "has number 21 gone in yet?" to see where they were in the queue!

    Dr Panniker was my GP from 1940’s to when I moved to Canada in 1966.

    I heard his son committed suicide.Is this true?


  2. In my recent endeavours at bread baking I was not able to replicate the taste of my grandmother’s brad cakes..I seem to remembered the yeast was called balm and was the texture of firm putty..Am I mistaken, when I google“balm” there is no indication it is yeast

  3. There used to be a bake shop on Parkside Rd.When I was going to Hillsborough infants school, must have been  around  1945 I was given milk money,I think it was a penny.

    I used to walk up Parkside Rd to school.We would sometimes buy  a tea cake with the milk money At the bake shop
    By the way there was a photo on the BBC Sheffield website showing 75 anniversary by some residents of Parkside Rd

    It was actually the Centre Spot on Snig Hill that opened some time before 1964. The buildings there were demolished in 1971 and so it by then must have moved to King Street, as shown in the April 1971 photo. Here is a link to a scan from a 1970 Kelly's directory showing businesses on that part of Snig Hill. https://i.postimg.cc/6QqG1xY7/001.jpg

    I must have a huge gap in my memory.I remember Red Circle library.Leyland paints.Was it Avery scales, a candy store.Too many dead brain cells in my 81 year old head
