  3. Hello again, I know it's ages since I made a post in this topic but I thought it would be better than making a new one. As an update there will now be a published book available around September time for anyone that is interested. At the moment I am trying to identify as many photos and films as possible to make it more interesting to browse through. If anyone would be interested in helping me name a few please contact me at newfieldhistory@aol.com and I again I would be grateful of any more information or photos. Thanks, Danny
  4. Can anybody remember when Sheffield became a "smokeless zone"?
  5. Whilst searching through the many pages of Sheffield History I decided to look through the old Mortons Cutlery site. What I found was actually quite amusing. Archeologists that were on the old site before the regeneration of the old building claimed that they had found some tuning forks that were a century old. Well my dad owns Mortons Cutlers currently and knows that the tuning forks are only around 16 years old, and were thrown out by the previous owners son because no one bought them. I just think it's really funny in the way they've gone to the fuss of taking these tuning forks around to local history exhibitions and even at the side of the old building there are tuning fork monumnets The thing that gets me is that the archeologists just presume everything they say is right and never bother asking the people that might know anything about it.
  6. I probably wouldn't benefit from it but I could see it being a good idea sending it past Jordanthorpe and the other estates and then sending it through to Dronfield. Its also relatively flat around that area.
  7. Sorry if this topic has already been started, but I just couldn't face looking at a few hundred search results. Where would you like to see the Supertram go in the future?
  8. Thank you for more comments people! Also nuts77, it is a time of which I am missing information, so anything you can tell me would be very useful! I have a very large box of photos of which some of the events are not clear.
  9. I think I actually have pictures of that 6th form disco with the band playing!
  10. Sorry to double post here but this thread was burried way below. I have now finished the sample booklet and will soon be presenting it to the head to try and pursuade her to get a proper copy. For thoose in the Secondary modern era: Did you have to buy your own books? What did you do at breaktimes? What were the School meals? What equipment did you use in general to write with? What kind of events were there? Who made and typed the School magazine? Was cinefilm used at the time. (I am asking this because I have just unearthed a large pile of cinefilm of which I cannot currently date) What sort of books were in the library?
  11. Hello again, I am nearing the end of creating the text part of the written booklet, and I will very soon be starting the documentary. At the moment I am at the stage of writing between the period of 1970 - 1990. My question is towards thoose in the era of the Blue and Red building. Did students of the upper and lower School ever swith buildings, for cooking and woodwork for example?
  12. So was a lesson in the house flat a double or single lesson?
  13. How long were the lessons in the Girl's School?
