Not a feature just particular to Sheffield, but oh for the return of bus conductors.

Unfortunately true.

 

With conductors came more freely flowing buses (less time stood at stops coughing fumes and causing congestion). Journey times cut. Timetables adhered to easier. Safer and more secure environment for passengers. Less stress on driver freeing him up to concentrate on the job in hand ..... driving.

 

Them were t' days.

would have been a bit pointless doing that. The place was a muggers and wino's paradise anyway.

 

agree with you there. i was attacked in the hole in the road by two guys when i was a teenager ...glad it's gone!

Tinsley towers

Some of the old city centre buildings that have disappeared only to be replaced by ugly rubbish.

And the Burger King on Fargate.

I would like to bring back a street of the old back to back houses preserved as they were with all the old furniture and furnishings and household appliances in them,and even down to the outside toilets and cobbles.

There certainly was a large fishtank containing tropical fish, viewed through a large glass panel in the wall of the underpass. Don't know who owned it. Woudn't last two minutes now.
