  12. Thanks for the above, they have pictures but none of Owlerton and that what they are specially looking for.
  13. Thanks, but for some reason it is only Owlerton they are looking at, in particular photo's.
  14. Relations of the late John Farrar are putting a book together about this well known Sheffield funfair operator and wondered if anyone has and photographs or stories to tell about when Farrar's (not Whiting's who visited here in the 80's) used to visit Owlerton believed to be in the 1960's.
  15. In the 1960's a fair was held on a goods yard near the Midland Station and in the late 1970's fairs were held near to where the Europa garage is at the bottom of Granville Road.Years ago fairs were held on the old station approach at the former Victoria Station.
  16. It is the big piece of waste ground adjacent to the station where the fair will be.
  17. All the old names mentioned, but not seen anyone mention Cardboard Shoes, Keith Skues. He was one of the main men behind Radio Hallam.
