Yes, I remember Olive Field's place. My old mum went there and also another ladies salon half way up Bolsover Rd on the left.

 

I remember the bike shop next door to Olive's very well... Bill Beevers (and Beavers! ;-) if any lads remember the smutty pics/books he had in the window around 1967! :D

It was Kennington's Butchers, "One Quality... the best" and it was run by butcher Jim Kennington. I was a butchers lad there for awhile around 1970/1. What a lovely bloke Jim was. A lot of fun to work with, but it was hard work.

 

And I think the other butchers was actually "Asher's" run by Jack Asher. I seem to remember he felt superior to us as he had two shops. He did lovely hot roast pork sarnies on weekday lunchtimes! Yum! What a treat they were! ;)

Hi Gracie, Which Nortcliffe's do you mean? I knew Ernest Nortcliffe who had a son Norman. Ernest was involved in Boys Brigade at Reform Chapel and they moved to Ecclesfield but thats maybe 35 years ago.
