    King Edwards Hospital, 1965

    I was interviewed on the Wilfred Pickles show when they broadcast from Rivelin, I believe Violet Carson ( Ena Sharples played the piano. Some of the stars who played at the Empire theatre used to put a show on at the hospital. remember Tesse O'Shea, who played the banjo, Winifred Attwell,(Piano), and of course there was also the circus.

    River witham bream fishing

    I have been across the bridge at Tattersall a few times over the past year, and have only seen one person fishing. I think there are too many carp puddles in that area and people have lost interest.

  10. Mr Taffinder always wore a flat cap. I don't know how true it is, but my mother told us he never took it of, and the first time Blondie knew he was bald was on their wedding night

    Beechwood private clinic Sheffield

    I was a Black cab driver in the 70s, and we knew as the customer approached us on Fitzalan Square where we were going. It was always a young girl and her mother, the young girl always carried a small vanity case. When they were both in the cab, the mother used to lean forward and whisper, "Beechwood", and that was all that was ever said on the whole journey.
