If you could bring back one of Sheffield's past features

Recommended Posts

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.

 

Bit like The Black Country museum. Love that place.

Still got my outside toilet!

There are plans to bring water play back to Millhouses.

Does any-one remember Rebina shoes on the market?

I'd like to see the old 'proper' Sheffield Show come back in Hillsborough park, when they had the army stands and stuff, live bands and that. Also remember them displaying a submarine there in the 70's.

would have been a bit pointless doing that. The place was a muggers and wino's paradise anyway.
Remove the winos and muggers, not the hole. A shot behind the head would've done the trick.

Goodwin Fountain, the extensive tram system that went somewhere, Cochranes, Cole(s Brothers) Corner, what Council demolished for no reason, large streets in town, the demise of Meadowhall.

I never saw the "Hole in the Road" but reading about it I would have loved to have seen it. Was it true it used to have a fish tank???

yeah it had a fishtank in one wall, big flower pot thingies in the centre under the hole, doors to the various shops round it and paths leading off to all the various thoroughfares......could be confusing sometimes trying to work out which path lead to the area you needed to go lol.

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.

that wasnt due to bus conductors that was due to the times (70s) less traffic etc etc

Wappentec (sp?) and Rackham's! Casbah never been half as good as it was before, and Sheffield is the biggest city without a House of Fraser in it's centre... Meadowhall doesn't count, since it's a nasty little dump that should have been made into a prison afterall :)
