  1. Open this link then click once or twice on the map (1951), it should expand to see detail. Don't look like courts though. https://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/uploads/monthly_09_2008/post-188-1220941524.jpg
  2. Members of the same family can be passengers and no doubt contribute to fuel costs on journeys and holidays. Recently a friend drove from Ecclesall to Pitlochry and back (9pm) in the day to pick up some expensive loudspeakers.
  3. Several brackets on my 1940s semi-detached gutters are failing. Anywhere in Sheffield suitable brackets could be bought? They seem hard to locate. I would prefer to replace the originals (standard half-round) rather than fit adjacent repair brackets. The latter are advertised on ebay but don't really look sturdy enough.
  4. With the hope of cheering up the recipients of G24's demands, here is one from the Parking Prankster's own experience with G24. https://parking-prankster.blogspot.com/2013/10/ggg24-cccancel-ppparking-cccharge-using.html
  5. What are practical alternatives for plastic, something we could use when (and if) the oil industry is no more?
  6. Hi Rudds 1, presume you had scaffolding, what was the cost? Was the job done a while ago?
  7. From Wiki: The Andromeda Galaxy is approaching the Milky Way at about 110 kilometres per second (68 miles per second).[107] It has been measured approaching relative to the Sun at around 300 km/s (190 mi/s)[1] as the Sun orbits around the center of the galaxy at a speed of approximately 225 km/s (140 mi/s). This makes the Andromeda Galaxy one of about 100 observable blueshifted galaxies.[108] Andromeda Galaxy's tangential or sideways velocity with respect to the Milky Way is relatively much smaller than the approaching velocity and therefore it is expected to collide directly with the Milky Way in about 4 billion years. A likely outcome of the collision is that the galaxies will merge to form a giant elliptical galaxy[109] or perhaps even a large disc galaxy.[17] Such events are frequent among the galaxies in galaxy groups. The fate of the Earth and the Solar System in the event of a collision is currently unknown. Before the galaxies merge, there is a small chance that the Solar System could be ejected from the Milky Way or join the Andromeda Galaxy.[110]
  8. I'm not sure about the latest opinions, but it is said that Beavis verdict (GPEOL) didn't apply to ticket parks. https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5230466
  9. At the beginning they are setting out in a Wolseley 16/60. Pity it's only in 480 res, but you can just make out the petrol pumps where Lidl now is, and a brief glimpse of the hacksaw factory which stood on Wednesday's car park.
  10. The building that stood before Dial Motors was probably damaged by the same stick of bombs that demolished St Philips church.
  11. I think there are only one or two places (shops in Sheffield) that would service it. The drive belts have usually stretched at this age, and if your lucky the idler and drive rubbers might be still serviceable, and the heads are ok. Could cost more than its worth though.
  12. That's what I was thinking, but funds have to be had from somewhere if they use cash (or card). Perhaps it's none of our business?
  13. I'm flattered! Settled means rooted there permanently, attempted means they didn't achieve permanence because they got kicked off, as I understand it. I've nothing against them as far as I know they've done nothing wrong.
