Recommended Posts

Thanks for that geotom & Southweller, a friend of mine knew George after they met in Germany, and attended his funeral in Sheffield, and he asked me if Brian was related.

Either demolished or converted into flats, like Rising Sun at Brightside.

Hiya George, i was just going though threads and notice you comments

about Rising Sun, just looked in my picture folder. i took the pics

last year.

Yes i've been in Rising Pub years ago but now made into flats.

 

 

The same buildings but upside of Jenkin Rd.

 

Railway Pub, i've never been in.

Can anyone help. I'm looking for a copy of Alan Billams book about Grimesthorpe. Can't seem to buy it from anywhere. If you know where I can get a copy can you let me know. I'd be really grateful.

The Star shop on York St used to have it. Probably Sheffield Scene too on Surrey St.

Hi Brian, yes it was converted about 3 years ago, as far as I am aware, they are still empty.

Hello. I've just had a word with Alan Billam and said he may have a few copies of his book left. Unfortunately, Alan is not too well at the moment and will have to get his daughter to look for them. If you can't find a copy locally, let me know and will put you in touch with him.

Thanks everyone. I've managed to get the book from Sheffield Scene on Surrey Street. The last one on the shelf.

Here's a photo I took with the pump showing about three years ago looking from Upwell Lane towards Upwell Street. The spout is still there out of shot on the other side, the square hole is where the handle would have been years ago. It looked much the same when I saw it a few months ago.

Hiya Peter R, This subject has been on here but very long ago,

so i thought i'd put this on this thread.

I'am sure there are lots of people will remember this and where they

lived and where they were at the time of the fire.

 

At Height of the blaze many as 15 fire engines from around Sheffield

spent 5/6 hours tackling the outbreak at Firth Brown' Carlisle St.

Story was there was contractors in to do work on the first day of

the shut down week, the Steelmen were on a 2 weeks holiday.

Can anyone remember where they were at the time of the fire.

PS, It was in the 2/3 Machine shop - July 1969

Hi Brian,

 

As a child I lived on Adsetts Street which is about 200 yards or so on the right behind the camera on the shot below taken 14 Nov 1965. I worked at Firth Browns as you know until 1966, but left the area when I married in 1965 and missed the fire as I lived in Bramley near Rotherham at the time.
