  1. Hi all, There used to be a message on that wall saying "Welcome Home Boys" I remember my dad saying it was for the lads when they came back from the war. Next to Homericthe tall building was where the cars was builtWhen I was going to Grimesthorpe Sshool in the early fifities it was a coach repair business. I can remember stopping to watch. Later it became part of Homeric, the top floor was a warehouse and the ground floor had the chromium plating baths. nice to hear from you Nettie hope you are keeping well?
  2. I am so sorry to here of Trevors passing. I remember him as a boy very well, you used to live next door but one to our Auntie Maggie and Uncle Henry. Although the family wont know me please give them my sympathy. Irene Clarke
  3. Hi all, Just been bowsing through the different subjects and came across one Sheffield from the air. There are a few photos of Grimesthorpe Gas Works, and the is no road over to the station and the school (I presume the one by the traffic lights junction of Jenkin Road is on Rose Hill(?). The photos were taken in the 1920s. I know my dad always called the top of Holywell Road the new road. It also name the farm as Grange, That is if I got the orentation right. There are allotments where Readymix was.
  4. You are right, there was a stop pposite the gasworks, the next stop was opposite, Belks, about where the crossing is now. Do you remember when a crossing was first put in. It was the side of Ibbersons shop. I know because I croose from Lemm's to go home and a policeman followed me home and told my mum and me that I should have used the new crossing, My mum gave him an earful, telling him that I would have two cross two other dangerous roads to cross the across the crossing. not long after that the crossing was moved to outside Lemms. Can anyone remember who Dr. Willie knocked down on that crossing. ---------- Post added 17-04-2013 at 08:05 ---------- I shall have to use the spell check next time. I'll blame my new glasses
  5. I can just remember people playing bowls there and if I remember rightly it was a crown bowling green. Hope eveyone is keeping well, especially Nettie
  6. I worked at Homeric in 1963 until I got married in 64 and moved down south. I woked for a while in the top wharehouse then I moved down to the bottom wharehouse, a woman called Amy was in charge and Sandra was in supervisor. Sandra came to my wedding,i would love to know what she is doing now, unfortunately we lost touch. My cousin's wife Nellie Davies worked there for a while as well. again I have lost touch. I'am trying to think of other names, they will come to mind soon.
  7. I wish everyone a peaceful and HAPPY CHRISTMAS and a Happy and Prosperous New Year. enjoy eveyone. Irene
  8. Hi Cat, Have just been looking at the photos, they really brought back loads of happy memoirs. There is one with a question mark, I think it is Firvale (where the traffic lights are now) looking from the old hospital gate down towards Owler Lane, the church spire threw me though, but could it be the church, long gone, on Wincobank Lane.
  9. Hope you have a good reunion, and that Nettie is getting better. Sorry I can't be there, we'll be on the high seas. Have a great time. Irene
  10. Hi Sorry to Nettie is'nt feeling very well. Hope she gets well soon. Give her my best wishes
  11. We're all fine here. I think Evelyn is still alive She is our cousin but I don't know about Auntie Rosie's daughters. Evelyn was Jackie Davies (elder) sister.
  12. Hi all, The shop I was asking about was a cafe, Geotom sent me a cutting of the star and it was in there. There was a big painting on Chambers Lane of a soldier and a Welcome home boys sign and a Union Jack. I'm sure the houses at the top of the lane was back to back (Annie lived in one), the pavement to them was a lot higher than the road. then there was a cottage on is own just round the corner from the Bowling Green. I worked at Homeric for about 18 months, just before I got married. I worked in thetop wharehouse then down stais in the bottom, Amy was the manager there and I'm trying to think of the others. How is Nettie keeping these days? I hope eveyone is well.
  13. no it was right down by the gas works. The last shop before the bridge.
  14. Can anyone remember the name of the shop on Upwell street by the bridge? Opposite end to Ibertsons. I can only recall going in it once.
  15. Hi Cat, I got your PM. I have sent you a reply but it came back error. Perhaps if you ask geotom he will pass it on to you. Thank you for the information though. I'll have to try and get there next time I come up
