Darnall did you live here

Recommended Posts

hi

Most of my Mum's side of the family were from Darnall,  I'm trying to get some help with locating any photos of Gladstone Street.

My mum Margaret , her sister Joyce and my Nan  Margaretta Pullen lived in various houses around Darnall ,  my grandad Joe Pullen died very young  and  my Nan remarried  and  went to live on Oliver's Mount with her husband Wil Bladen who was an insurance sales man.

My mum is now 82  and remembers good times at Gladstone street , does anybody remember them or have any photos that I could print to show my mum ??

any help much appreciated 

 

thanks

My mum lived in Coleford road across from.. the church she was bombed out in 1940.T.he ARP wardens shelter was hit and six of the seven wardens were killed

I was born and brought up on the Littledale estate and my mum lived there for 63 years before moving to an old folks home where she passed away in 2018.

We always watched the parade with Eric morley leading  the way, we also used to see him sometimes in the darnall liberal club where my dad and I became life members(after 25 years membership) . It is sad to see how rundown darnall appears but I have happy memories of the park  and going to the saturday matinee at the Lyric cinema

I lived in Darnall for a while and took many photographs - one day I went into the Rose and Crown and someone said to me - "take his picture, he's just read his obituary in the Star"  I did but it was 1976 and my notes have gone astray - If my memory is correct he was called 'Albert' - if anyone knows who he was and anything about him I would be greatly obliged .

Re Littledale Estate - 1960/63 when I worked at J.Stead Tools Manor Lane there was a guy who worked in the grinding dept by the name of John Surr, he lived on Littledale, and if still alive will be over 90 now maybe 95 even

 

Around 1981/2 I often went for lunch at the pub on Littledale, but cannot remember the name
