We moved to Verdon Street Post Office in 1978 because my parents took it over. I didn't go to any of the local schools because my sister and I stayed in the school we were already in and travelled to it. We lived in the flat above the Post Office and Jane Naretti lived next door but one.

 

We made friends with Marion Smith and Carla and Deborah Somerset both lived on Verdon Street and Millicent Ellis who lived on the high rise flats round the corner from Rock Street. I also remember Kevin Jowe who lived near Rock Street and Andrew Moffat. Does anyone know any of these people? All went to High Storrs school with us.

 

OOOh and Mark Eades (who went to the same school as me) because his Nan lived on Verdon Street so we often caught the bus together when he was visiting her.

 

And I remember the Whitehouse chippy, the Furnival Pub, Marshall's newsagents and Marshall's fruit shop next door to us where Bill worked and his grandson Andrew was gorgeous .... :love:

 

Then in later years we moved to Pitsmoor Post Office because my parents bought it when Mrs Sheehan retired. My mum died but my Dad carried it on for quite some years after and only retired 3.5 years ago.

Hello,

 

I remember Melia's but can't place its exact location. I do remember that there was a shop called Bevan's, between Wigfalls and the Collie. I never a reason to go in but seem to think part of the shop had a big skylight. I think it sold womens' clothes (or even underwear) and was really old fashioned, judging by what they put in the windows in the 1940s.

 

You mentioned Melia's but wasn't there also a Mellor's somewhere? As you will remember, Sheffield in the day' before the supermarkets had a lot of small/medium grocery chains Names such as: Shentall's (remember Harold Shentall was big in the FA), Gowers, Burgons, Gallons, Maypole, Lipton's in Haymarket, Home Farm Products, and so on.

 

All a long time ago.

My mother has a photo of my grandfather circa 1940s maybe earlier, stood outside the maypole grocery shop. She thinks the shop was on the wicker!, his name was tom and lived on normanton street, 35 i think.

This is directed to Texas - I'm only mentioning this because I know you lived in the general area and probably your era. Did you know a couple of girls by the name of Joyce Candlin and Shirley Housley? I think they lived in the same vicinity to one another, I recall they lived somewhere off Burngreave and that bombed church and if you were coming from town it would be on your left. Reason i'm asking they were just a couple of nice girls we met at the Greystones Dance one Saturday night.

Hey fleets, fancy meeting you here. I don't remember Shirley Housley, but Joyce Candlin lived on Nottingham Street just around the corner from Fox St. And we're talking many years ago here, infants stuff.
