Small world int it. I used to open the batting with crossy for shiregreen c.c back in the eighties . i didnt know him from grimesthorpe though .We were chatting one time and i mentioned that my sister decided to keep gerbils as pets .They used to breed all the time and used to drive me crazy !! He started to howl with laughter.he was the one who sold her first pair to. Good lad was Paul,always had plenty of time for him.Very good cricketer.

Sorry to hear about Terry. I used to live in the next yard from 1943 to 1957. My thoughts are with his family.

Hell Long Ago,

 

I enjoyed your post at the end of ''Part 2''. It was like a breath of fresh air from the top of Wincobank Hill :) Looking forward to more.

 

Regards, Peter.

Here is a photo which I snapped in 1990 of the Alexandra Hotel which was at the junction of Carlisle Street East and Scott Street, sadly minus any Firth Brown buildings or terraced housing. The junction with Carlisle Road (known as Crown Hill at this point) is behind me to the right and the junction with Newman Road is behind me to the left.

 

A photo taken on 12th July 1965 can be seen on http://www.picturesheffield.co.uk.
