  1. I'm certain there was a DIY store there in the early/mid 70s, Halfords might have taken over later.
  2. Does anyone remember the DIY store I think was called Jupiter, it was on the right as you entered, Comet being further up on the same side. I think it was still there into the 80s but I can't remember what happened to the building. Glynn Webb came along later and was on the other side where Home Bargains is now.
  3. Most likely you're right, in fact the old ones I think had internal motors with belt drive.
  4. Although it's best to get a new one especially if your oven is getting on in years, this video clip will help you understand what the problem is likely to be. https://www.espares.co.uk/product/es1598860
  5. I asked a friend who's lived all his life there, hasn't heard of it. What time scale, recent or way-back?
  6. That young girl you see in the photos later became a girlfriend of mine! I've sent you a PM.
  7. It wasn't no secret that the ignorant folk of this fair country wanted a bunch of entitled privately-schooled yobs (didn't titled Kier attend a private school?), they openly voted for them. Wiki (assuming it's correct): "Starmer has called for a reform to the EU free movement rules following Brexit and for a "fundamental rethink of immigration rules from start to finish".[45] In his first interview after being appointed to the Shadow Cabinet, Starmer argued that immigration was too high and called for it to be reduced as Britain leaves the EU, despite Corbyn ruling out any cap.[46] Starmer told Politico in April 2016 that negotiations with the EU should start on the understanding that there must be "some change" to freedom of movement rules, given that remaining in the EU single market is no longer a reality.[47] In May 2017, Starmer said that "free movement has to go", but that it was important to retain "free movement of labour", given the importance of immigration for the UK's economy.[48] Starmer was a supporter of a second referendum on Brexit,[49] with this position becoming Labour Party policy in their 2019 General Election manifesto.[50] "
  8. Money Saving Expert and/or PePiPoo fightback forums should be able to help you.
  9. Thanks, that's him, he was a specialist on Manx Nortons ; he was getting on then. I remember going to his engineering workshop with Pete Richards, an Australian m/cycle racer who had a Manx. Pete and his wife bought a house on Lyminster Rd S6 and stayed in the UK a while, he worked as a coach builder at Kennings Coachworks on Penistone Road.
  10. Yes, a friend had a separate recording studio in the same building (1979). It was Britannia Works, Love Street formerly Henry Dixon Ltd. Pics can be found on picturesheffield/.com.
  11. Read (a good while ago) that an artifact was found somewhere around Rivelin turned out to be a type of metal badge issued to Roman soldiers when they were de-mobilized from the army.
  12. The aroma of wild rabbit roasting in the oven whilst being basted with stew gravy could sway even the most ardent vegetarians.
  13. That is (or used to be) common around High Green, also they seem to emphasise the "t" in some words.
  14. There's plenty of info on Google under "drywall bulge/buckle".
  15. Actually (as teenagers) we formed a club; we put out a request through The Star for readers to donate badges and I ended up with the enamel one. Someone craftily purloined it though and I never saw it again.
  16. I'm no expert and can't comment further, but I have seen plaster board "buckle".
  17. Presume it's a solid brick wall and not a stoothing partition? Old houses usually are brick partitions, but with plasterboard mentioned probably a hollow wall. Is other side flat and normal looking?
  18. I had a Gloops badge, AND it was a brass one with blue enamel!
  19. I doubt whether that would happen by the amount of litter I've seen around some school gates. Teachers or at least the adults that pass by to enter the schools either don't care or are oblivious to it.
  20. If I'm conversing with a foreigner whose english is not good, or over the telephone, then I'll modify my accent (and some words) for the sake of clarity.
  21. When I knocked out my internal kitchen wall (2.6m span) I used a 6" x 5" girder, above it is the wall up to the eaves. Below the removed single-brick wall is a 12" girder, fitted when the house was built in 1940. It all survived the house shaking during the earthquake in 2008.
  22. Yes, the forgotton and neglected bit of the car! Not necessary though now.
