Thank you cuttsie and why was it dodgy? I left Sheffield in 1986 so have missed a few things

If my memory is correct , I bought a sheath knife from a shop in the wicker in 1946. I was 14 yrs old, wouldn't happen today.

There was an opticians called Chadburns Lenses Ltd. I think it was 22 The Wicker but I can’t be certain. They had a factory on Meadow street.

The building had lots of floors and up at the top was the office where it was possible to look right down the Wicker.

I used to hang out the window and wave to the rag and bone man with his horse and cart.

Across the road  and a bit lower down was the Chinese restaurant and a huge furniture shop.

Freidrichs  did the best roast pork bread cake and if you were a bit hard up you could have the belly pork one or even just a dripping cake.

Looking at a video on Sheffield History the Wicker is hardly recognisable except for the arches.
