  1. Anyone have any funny stories about passing their driving test? I was eight months pregnant and I think the examiner was worried he might have to act as midwife!!!
  2. Turned it off after 20 minutes! What a load of rubbish!!
  3. Who remembers sitting the eleven plus exam? Did failing it ruin your life?
  4. I went to St.Pats and lived on Homestead Road! I would have started about 1947!!!
  5. We had our share of interesting people in Sheffield City Centre in the 50s/60s with Pond St.Nora and Big Ada. But, did anyone know or remember the guy who ran round looking in litter bins and muttering to himself? He always wore a flying helmet.
  6. Can anyone recommend a picture framer in Sheffield. We usually go to the wonderful Momento at Attercliffe but he's closed until the end of August!!!!!
  7. Given that television first started in 1936 when there were 500 sets in the UK, with most people buying one after the Coronation in 1953, does anyone know anyone who was affluent enough to have one in the early days?
  8. Just travelled past the Front Room Indian Restaurant at Hillsborough and every window and the door are boarded up? Anyone know whats happened? Its such a lovely place to eat.
  9. Sheffield seemed to produce quite a few beauty queens in the 50s/60s. Who remembers Delyse Humpheries, Christine Owen and I think Johnny Fanthams wife Carole won one of the beauty titles? Does anyone remember?
  10. Stand corrected!!!! Stand by my original comments though!!!
  11. Given that the Peak District is Derbyshire, no, I feel that there should be something representative of Sheffield and its heritage.
  12. Just wondered what the significance is of the rocks/ stones used as decorations around the new Moor buildings, ie Cambridge Street and Charter Row. As Sheffield is supposedly a steel city, wouldn't it be better to have steel sculptures incorporated into the designs. Even some statues which are a feature in other cities. What happened to the statues we had in Sheffield in the past?
  13. Wonder if there are any plans for renovation of this beautiful place after such a success with the old Attercliffe baths. Wouldn't it make a wonderful music venue or will it be left to rot?
  14. Remembering the Nelson Pub, which I think was across the road from the old Redgates store. Can anyone remember the landlord of fairly recent times who was obsessed with plastic surgery? I seem to think he held a record for having most done or something like that!!!! I have a vague recollection that Cindy Jackson the woman who had most plastic surgery in the UK came to meet him?
