  7. How long can a big issue seller operate for? I always thought the idea was to sell it to give them a start in life. I know of one who has operated on the same pitch for at least 8 years and now he advertises at his pitch that you can pay by debit or credit card (he has a card machine). His profit is £1.25 per copy so he makes a good few quid plu benefits no doubt.

  21. In the 1950s I used to travel by tram from Penistone rd to town and then catch a Weedon St tram to Attercliffe to visit my Aunt Violet and uncle Albert, Aunt Mary Ann also lived there. I was 10 years old and made this journey often. Imagine nowadays trying that. My purpose in writing this is that our family lost touch when this generation died. They had 2 sons Michael plus Stan. I know the 2 lads did National sevice in the Suez crisis or the Korean war.STAN worked in the Steel industry and the MICK was a stone mason. Its funny how as you get older thing spring from your memory bank. I am curious to know if anyone knew of them. There surname was BERRY and I remember them livin on or near Zion lane.
