Lived further away on Cross Addy street but use to walk down Portland street to the bus on Langsett Rd. Also the same way and cut across yo my grandparents on Langsett rd at the side of the pub I think half way down OPPOSITE Vtoss Portland street where Herbert Jackson kept first of all coaches and later when my father worked for him coal lorries. On cps there was also stables were ar one yime a fruit and veg man use to keep his horse and cart. Also a bit of a newsagents yhat operated from a terraced house. At thr top of Portland Street there was a butchers A Denniff who's father ran it (donkey denniff). Use to go into cartlidges at the top years before. The worst was after everyone hsd moved out having to walk down yhe centre of the road during the Sheffield gales while the tiles flew off the roof about 8am
