The Cannon.circa 1979 on.Friday nights in the Cellar bar.My first experience of the pub culture so I didnt know any better!! Just met friends there.Should have realised eventually when I got my nose broken on the stairs.One of my friends was once carried out on a ladder!!How my lungs survived a year or so in there I've no idea.
I remember coming of the pub one Christmas Eve(Even the Cannon chucked you out at 3pm in those days!!!) and a group of Sheffields finest was throwing everyone and I mean everyone into the back of a van.(Baseball bats and all).
In those days when you walked into a bar and got served straightaway it was usually because there had just been a punch up.

Whenever I hear Rhythm of the rain it takes me straight back there.It always had a decent jukebox.

Ah happy memories.

The Athol Hotel, Charles Street/Cross Burgess Street, Place resembled a wild west saloon with open staircase (architecture not customers) it was on three levels the men's toilets being on the upper floor and they sold Newcastle Brown on draught. Closed around Sept.1965.

It was on Attercliffe Road. Had many a Saturday night lock-in late 80s. The building is still there but been derelict for years.

Ah yes Jim, the Queens at Attercliffe Road and Shirland Lane, just below 'Banner's'. The Saville Street bit through me off.

You could even order something from certain customers and within half an hour they had been to their supplier and got it for you at a huge discount price! Even Wilkinsons could not compete on price.
Haha! Their supplier.

I frequented the Cannon a lot in the 80s before a pub crawl and recall my mate ordering 2 owls shirts, and within 1 hour he had them at a very good price.

It wasn't just the Cannon, you could get cheap stuff from all the pubs around that part of town, Brunswick, Bull and Mouth, Norfolk ,Rotherham house etc. Once approached by a shady character in the Kings Arms at the top of Commercial St. He took his jacket off and he had a load of watches strung up both forearms LOL

Well an Attercliffe lock-in at the Queen's would be better than the old Whitworth Lane.
