Recommended Posts

Hi grannypat,

I remember most of those people that are named,I remember the last time

I saw Albert Price he was the manager of a pub near Mansfield, that was at least 15 yrs ago. Another lad was Tony Marshall he lived at the other end of

the street ..Had some good times with Glynn, Dave, and Tony but not heard

or seen anything of them since.. Steve Marriot, Gary Rhodes, I moved to Gleadless Valley at the same time when Hodgson St was earmarked for demolition..

if i think of anyone else i will let you know

bigmicky

love xxx

Hi Mick,

 

I do remember a character to who made us laugh a lot, Jimmy Elwes. How about Lois Lambert, Linda Hall, Christine Dawson, Susan Mullins, Raymond Price, Tony Marsh, Margaret Siddall, Glyn Prout, Linda Carnell, Hazel Dutton and Susan Weightman. There were Carol and David Whiting (not sure of the surname but they lived at The Vine I think)

Sorry hillsbro but I don't know any of the names you listed. They must have been a different age group to me.

Hi Billie,

Of course I remember you, as well as (Pete)He lived across from me on the Valley and my son Wayne who is the Pro at Beauchief golf club, told me a couple of weeks ago Pete and another mate Mick Stringer was playing golf there and asked about me.

I have not seen Pete for years it would be good to catch up at somepoint

probably to have a round of golf ???

good to hear from you Billie

Hi Mick,

Good to hear from you.

I have been in touch with Pete but not for a while but have spoken to Brian and Julie.

I am also in touch with Georgie Lee.

I am living in Swansea so don't get to Sheffield Much.

Will have to arrange a reunion.

Hi Pat,

 

We lived 3 doors from the Gallaghers next to Hancocks.

Did you know that my Aunt Lucetta passed away a few years ago.

hi we lived in hanover lane and i went to st silas school my gran lived at 78 clarance street she was helen mosley and grandad was harry.my father was Tommy Ismay. my brother in law went to st silas he was Trever Allan. maybe you knew some of these names.

 

Hello Nora, This is my first post on this site, and I must admit to being more than a little emotional reading all the posts. Such memories! I remember the Ismay family, I think you lived next door, or next door but one, to the little corner shop, which I don't remember the name of. My maiden name was Betty Hartley and I live with my Mum, Dad and brother Barrie born 1937 at 269, Hanover St. Barrie went to St. Silas for the first 5yrs and then he had to leave to accompany me to Hunter's Bar. I wondered if anyone remembers him.

Hello.

I am Alan Smith b.1943. and lived at 16/3 Hodgson Street near the Star Picture House. We lived just slightly up and across from the Mission Hall.(Sunday School)

Mum and Dad were Alice and Hughie Smith who drank in 'The Sheldon'

Our neighbours were the Horsfield's, Clovers, Wraggs, Healds, Frances, Dunworths

 

Hello Alan, I am more familiar with your side of Hodgson St, as I used to walk up there from Hanover St., where I lived, to catch the bus opposite The Star to go to school. I lived at the first house on the right past the corner of Hodgson St., and I used go to The Mission Sunday School. I remember the first time I went my Mum gave me money for Jesus, but I took it back home because he wasn't there. I remember the names Horsefields, Dunworths but not the others. There was a family opposite you I remember I used to go their house, but I can't remember who they were. Do you remember the name of the little lane opposite The Mission Hall, that ran up to Bangor St. For the life of me I can't put a name to it. A taxi driver called Binky lived on there.

I don't remember the name of the pub but the lane you are referring to I think was called Clarence Lane.

Hi Mick,

Came to Swansea for work and never went back.Met a girl down here and the rest is history.

You are right we did have some fun and a lot of laughs but things do seem to have changed.

I have Pete's number will ring him and get back to you.
